Friday Links O'War: June 27th

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Here are your Friday links. We'll call this...alumni day.

Joe Mauer and Matt Carpenter, kindred spirits:

While they come from very different baseball backgrounds, Mauer and Carpenter have very similar hitting styles. Clearly, Mauer has the superior track record. The Minnesota Twins catcher and now first baseman owns a career batting line of .319/.401/.461 over the course of 11 seasons.

Hue Jackson on importance of Jason Campbell to Andy Dalton:

Dalton agrees, and is happy to have someone whose been through the fire and has wisdom to share.

"He’s been around for a long time and came in with a good understanding of the game," said Dalton. "This is year ten for him – we always joke around about how old he is – but he’s had a good career. He’s a cool, easy-going guy and we have a great relationship."

Jets' Jeremy Kerley: 'I hope nobody believes us':

"I really just go off what the critics say," the slot receiver told Newsday after Wednesday's mandatory minicamp practice. "Statistically last year, it wasn't as good as we would want it to be. So when I say people are sleeping on us, it's more so to say: Watch what we put out this year. Watch what we do this year."

Verrett focused on health, camp prep:

"I'm feeling good," Verrett said, when talking with reporters on the final day of minicamp. "I've been running around lately these last few days, and I've been able to do individual drills. And I'm going to be ready when camp gets back."
