Joe Mauer has had trouble staying healthy, but the Minnesota Twins catcher seems to be ready to go this season as the Minnesota Twins get set to start Spring Training. It seems a new, more relaxed Mauer will be taking the field for the Twins this season, too.
Actually that might be going a bit too far, but Mauer was quoted saying he's been "jamming out" to Adele while in the batting cages this spring (winter?).

Adele won quite a few Grammy's this past weekend so it's hard to blame Mauer for getting down to her angst-filled "jams," but he may want to figure out how to turn the system down before more than just the pitchers and catchers report to Florida. Or, maybe, a new theme song is just the ticket to turning this season around?
