Continued: Reusse: Like Smalley before him, Mauer must carry Twins to respectability

Mauer swung at a breaking pitch in the dirt from lefty Scott Kazmir, took a fastball for a strike, and then chopped a multi-hopper to first. That put him at 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and kept him as the only hitter in the lineup without an RBI.

Joe had to catch. There weren’t many runners on in front of him. Blah and blah.

No more excuses. Mauer has to be Everyday Joe in 2014, and he has to carry this team for a full hunk of the schedule, or all those dire predictions about 90 more losses and another sizable decline in attendance will come fully to fruition.

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
