Joe Mauer for MVP Gets Another Backer

'Duk of Big League Stew at Yahoo Sports weighs in. And he's for Mauer. And Ken Rosenthal is stupid (that's me talking, not 'Duk)

One thing that 'Duk fails to mention that should be mentioned in the Joe Mauer talk is that he is the everyday catcher with a young, young starting rotation that is still in the hunt for a Division Title.

Joe Mauer has been hitting the shit out of the ball, which tends to be what his backers talk about when they talk about his right to win the MVP. But if you don't want to get into the AVG w/ RISP and OPS and shit like that, you could easily argue that on defense, Joe Mauer is far more important than Jeter or Cabrera or whoever.
