Put another strike against Gardenhire; apparently he's been lying to us all along. Uggh.
So it looks like:
1) There's no reason for Drew being Pavano's "personal" catcher.
2) Mauer sitting instead of DH'ing is not what Mauer wants.
3) Gardenhire is a moron. In other, related news; the world is not flat.
Also, how did he think that word of this would never get out?
