Joe Mauer: In 2001, Mauer was a high school quarterback in Minnesota and threw 41 touchdown passes. He accepted a scholarship to Florida State. He was the USA Today offensive player of the year. Then, he picked baseball. “Mauer’s new contract is probably triple what all of the other USA Today All-American QBs of the past 20 years have made in their respective pro careers combined,” claims ESPN’s Bruce Feldman. We won’t go through all the names, but here are a few: Eric Zeier, Ron Powlus, Josh Booty, Ronald Curry, Chris Leak, Brian Brohm. With the exception of a few QBs, many of them never had an impact in the pros. Pretty neat read, if you have Insider. [ESPN]
