MLB ‘11: The Show
Why is Joe Mauer on the cover for the 2nd year in a row?
I’m about to go on a ignorant rant right now…i have a theory on Joe Mauer that I know many of you will not agree with but here is my opinion.
Joe Mauer is an exceptional ball player..has career average of .327 . Put up above average numbers last year while fighting injuries; He’s the face of Minnesota, hands down and if not the best , has to be one of the Top 3 catchers in baseball. Here’s my conflict. I feel like the MLB wants to make him the face of the whole league just because he fits the category of what White America wants. So they are trying make him more than what he actually is by branding him so aggressively.
A good looking young Caucasian with no ties to steroids or any type of bad rep as the face of America’s national past time. Him being on the cover for the second year in a row just makes my theory even more legit. In no other sports games has the same guy been on the cover 2 years in a row. However, I realize this could be one of 2 things: MLB wanting to label Mauer as the face of the league or just the game developers taking advantage of the sales that Mauer rakes in when he’s on the cover. Who knows?
My pick for The Show ‘11 cover should’ve been Albert Pujols or The Natural Josh Hamilton.
