MyFoxTwinCities.com has posted a new article taking a look at the current "funk" that The Minnesota Twins are in, and Doug Erlien, the author of the piece, makes a specific comparison between Joe Mauer and WWE star John Cena. The following is an excerpt from the article:
Joe Mauer once beloved by his home town fans is now playing the role of John Cena of WWE fame. He is suddenly hearing more boos with every ground out. With a no-trade clause and a 23 million dollar price tag per year, Mauer has become the punch line of fans and local media alike. The man once dubbed "The Baby Jesus" for his untouchability has only eight hits in the month of May. The only difference between Mauer and Cena at this point is there is no "Let's go Mauer" chants from one half of the stadium, and "Mauer sucks" from the other half.
