I will never understand the love fest with Joe Mauer.



All-American boy who was a top QB who turned down FSU and plays a rare position and #1 pick (and drafted by local team).


Thats all I have and can think of because I would not say he is the #1 prospect.

taylor was in h.s. but he got burned out in the minors


didn't taylor burn out because of injuries?


yeah he got in a bar room fight and messed up his arm


i saw him pitch in like the mid to late 90s with the Yankees Low-A club and it was sad. he was all over the place and just looked awful.
