Joe Mauer is staying!!!!
Joe Mauer has inked a 8 year 184 million dollar deal that will keep him with the Twins through the 2018 season (age 34). The 2009 AL MVP is expected to make $23 million dollars per year which is half a million more then Mark Texiera.
Great day to be a Twins fan especially in the wake of Joe Nathan announcing this morning that he will undergo Tommy John surgery. The news came after the Twins beat up on the Tampa Bay Rays 12 to 3. The Twins showed potential of what their lineup can do this season. Mauer went 2 for 4 today upping his spring batting average to .471.
