I don't think Mauer will ever show power. He was hot in the first half last season but hasn't shown much before or after in that category. I also think Brian will hit 30 home runs a few years. If he was hitting in a hitter friendly field he might already be there.

Mauer is a beast with average, but that might even take a hit playing outside in cold weather for his career. I just wish Brian had that DH day.

I think they are 1A and 1B, with Mauer having the upperhand now. But Mauer is a year older and you have to take that into play also.

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.

first half but since the ASB he's been on fire.

BM is consistent and will always give you 285/22hrs/85RBI year in year out. He's improving defensively & knows he has to keep working on that. His improvements have been great.

If JM bounces back to last year, I'd take him every day all day. That isn't a knock on BM either.

Great write up on him from Fan Graphs yesterday.....
