To answer my own question, Mauer tore cartilage in his knee and will miss 3-4 weeks after surgical repair. Tough break.....good for Cuddyer owners, though!!!

Hmmm...3-4 weeks sounds pretty optimistic for a catcher who has to bend his knees the entire game. I'd be willing to say it may be a tad longer than that to be 100%.

nope, blanco will catch in place of mauer, with lecroy starting at C occasionally to give him blanco a break. doesn't seem like cuddyer will be used any more, unless an infielder gets hurt.
