It's time for a quick post before I write a real one today or tomorrow.
How disappointed are we in Joe Mauer's legs? First a stress reaction, then a "really tight" left quadriceps? Left leg both times too... After being out a second straight game, Mauer's MRI reveals a strained left quad with some bleeding on the muscle. It's unsure if this will send him down to the disabled list or he can heal on the bench. Either way, the injury has fans and the team worried. Mauer also seems worried, noting that his leg was still "pretty sore" upon arriving at the clubhouse for the game today.
I'm also very disappointed at the timing of this. Not only did he miss most of the Red Sox series, but he was gone for BOTH of my first games of the year. And I had even brought a friend on Saturday who adores him. We were both very excited to see our man and then his left leg let us down. We can only hope that it will heal quickly and he'll be back to help out this struggling offense.
Until then, if he needs a personal leg masseuse, he should give me a call because I'm great with my hands and would do anything to get him back in the game!
