    Who is the more important signing for Minnesota? Favre or Mauer?

    This is something being debated right now on ESPN. I don't have a personal investment to either team, but IMO, it's not EVEN close.

    One is a player whose best days are behind him. One is a player in his prime who was MVP of his league last year.

    The vote has to go to Mauer without hesitation.

    Mauer.

    I hope Minn (pun intended) doesn't try to leverage the "hometown discount" too much. After all, he'll be able to afford to move his extended family anywhere if they really want to watch him play.

    The answer is Mauer. Farve will bring them all the publicity though.

    All I know about Minnesota sports is that I want USC to crush them in September.

    Joe Mauer. Of course the Twins have already taken a big hit with Nathan going down.

    And we'll see how they do going back outside again, after 30 years of having a tremendous home advantage in that joke place where they used to play.

    Balls hitting speakers, a white ceiling, a baggie on the outfield fence...not to mention 72 degrees all the time...

    All indications are that the new park will be a hitters park. So maybe the loss of Nathan won't be too big.

    100% Mauer. Minnesota born and raised. Playing for his hometown team.

    As much as I hate saying this (being in the AL Central) You have to keep Mauer in Minnesota.
