Mauer arrived at the Metrodome at 1:30 and left at about 11:30, after doing a leg workout and icing his body. As a starting catcher, he has to spend time every day honing his swing, studying opposing hitters, talking with his pitchers, working out and icing.
"I want to be out there every day," he said. "Everything I do, I do so I can feel good the next day. Yeah, it's a long day, but I get to play baseball. That's a pretty good gig."
So the still-growing local hero wasn't being silly when he bunted -- he was being humble and shrewd. He can be forgiven for helping his team beat the Bronx Bombers with, of all things, a bunt.
But I'd still rather see him swing the bat.
