Mauer is definitely better overall. He's amazing, and might develop into one of the best catchers ever (behind Bench obviously).|
But when you factor in salary (isn't Mauer a $20 million guy) and the Braves desperate need for a power hitter in the middle of the order, I wouldn't swap them.
As far as ballparks go, Brian is in a more HR friendly park now.
