This is breaking news!

Well, it was last night when I saw it and was still fresh when I wrote this post at 4:00 AM this morning.

Catchers are tough! See this clip if you don't believe me.

Some catchers are also very, very, very rich. See this link if you don't believe me.

An 8 year extension for $184 MILLION is amazing.

Joe knows $$.

Congrats Twins. Congrats Joe.

Thanks again to Phungo for this 2009 Phungo Original Joe Mauer.


  1. That is a lot of dough... I am glad that the Twins locked up Mauer though... I was terrified that the Yankees were gonna scoop him up. Mauer has a good cast of characters around him this year and I look forward to the Twins battling the big markets for the next decade. I just really hope this isn't the start of a sign and trade deal. By the way, I do LOVE the Phungo cards! Welcome back Brian!

  2. The only place I would rather have Mauer than Minnesota is Seattle. But it certainly could have been worse. Suck it Yankees and BoSox!

  3. This is just great for the Twins and for baseball. Even though I'm a Yankees fan, signing Mauer would have pretty much killed any competition left in MLB. Where's the excitement of that? Mauer deserves every cent. Bittersweet day for Twins fans though... Nathan's out for the rest of the year.
