A Minneapolis TV station reported today that Twins All Star catcher Joe Mauer was about to agree to a 10 year contract with the club. This imminent land mark decade long deal was soon refuted:
A major league source told FanHouse's Ed Price that the club is "pecking away" at an extension, and the feeling within the organization is that a deal will get done eventually, "but [it] will be a battle."
On semi-related news, the following video should help personalize Mauer and reaffirm his status as King of the Twin Cities. Oh, it is pretty damn funny too.
Chevy should sign Mauer to an ad deal pronto.
