Official Complain About Joe Mauer Discussion

Yeah, he's tearing it up.  But he's supposed to be perfect, not just incredible.  Continue to point out the shortcomings of Minnesota's Golden Boy in the comments.

At current pace (1 HR/9 AB), even if he somehow gets 500 at-bats this season, he will hit less than 60 homers.

All of his homeruns are to the opposite field, so we are robbed of the grandeur of upper-deck blasts.

Complete lack of exciting stolen bases and triples.

Just barely on pace to break Bonds' OPS record.

Only 1-for-6 catching baserunners stealing, and the one CS was at third (NOTE: this is actually a legitimate criticism, although the fact that every Twins catcher sucked terribly at this makes me think a lot of it is the pitchers' fault).

At current pace, will not become the first player to bat in the .400s since Ted Williams.

No sacrifice flies, after leading the league last year.

No longer dating Miss America, as far as I know.
