All-Star Monday Breakfast and Baseball: Futures Game, Mauer's shoulder, and more

Joe Mauer's getting a little curt when asked about his aching shoulder. (The rest of us get curt when we see his average falling below .300.) Also, Gardy would rather wrap Mauer in bubble wrap for four days instead of sending him to Anaheim, but you could guess that.
