The Twins have agreed to terms with starting catcher Joe Mauer. The deal is reportedly 8 years, $184 million with a full no trade clause. A press conference is scheduled for Monday night at the Twins complex in Ft. Myers. This is great news people. The average annual value is $23 million, a hair more than Texiera is making in New York. If there was a hometown discount, there wasn’t much of one. I would imagine he would be getting $25ish from the New York/Boston team. 8 years is a long time, but it will cover Mauer’s age 28-35 seasons which are his prime years.
What does everyone else think? We will break it down further once more details come out at the press conference tomorrow.8 comments
