Mauer deal....wow....

Pujols is gonna cost BIG money, but we already knew that. . I also wouldn't be putting him out there at catcher all the time. Too much for Mauer to me.

$23M per. I like Mauer, but that's absurd.

Contract for Mauer is a deal for a sure-fire HOFer.

Cards should be trying to get Pujols, who is *3 years* (wink, wink) older for around 25 per.

Mauer is still young and a superstud. You gotta pay these guys or theyre history.

Pujols is gonna be scary in pinstripes.

Also, keep in mind that Mauer is a hometown kid - the fans here absolutely adore him, and it would have been suicide for the Twins to let him go. Brand new stadium, which was pitched to the taxpayers as allowing the team to have a higher payroll. No way were they not resigning him.

Great player, and he brings in a ton of money for the team...

That's my point. Mauer's a helluva good young player, but sure fire HOFer?

Not seeing it, at least just yet.

Slam dunk. Not close.

But look at it this way, then:

Would you rather have Matt Holliday at 17 per, or Mauer at 23 per?

These two players aren't on the same level.

Given the relative market, that sounds about right actually. I'm just surprised a team like the Twins were willing to shell it out. The yank-me's or red sox would have easily paid that if he was a free agent.

I was at 6 or 7 Twins home games last year. They just built Target Field, which is such a nice ballpark. What the Twins now need is to fill the seats.

Mauer is a local Minneapolis product who worked his butt off to become the all-star he is today. He is the current biggest icon in Minnesota sports (yes, even more than Adrian Peterson) and is the biggest icon in Minnesota sports period since Chris Carter and before that Killebrew and Puckett.

Letting him go would've been instant death for that franchise. People would have been really pissed. Keeping him here and happy isn't just the best course of action for the team, it was the ONLY course of action for the team.

I'd rather have Matt Holliday at $17M and Yadier Molina at $3.3M than just Mauer at $23M

I have to admit being a sceptic about Pujols and the age/ longevity of continued dominance issue, but damn he is about three time the player this guy is. Mauer handles the pitching staff also....big whoop..... because if continues to do that, he won't be worth a shit well before 8 years. Put him at DH in the AL and he is an average guy with a better average and less power. The fans love him, he is a great "kid"...whatever. Too much.

I'm not at all debating that they should hang on to him, I just can't fathom that they couldn't have re-signed him for less than $23M

Seems like they were more than willing to overpay to keep him.

JMO.

Fair enough, but I think you're seriously undervaluing the best young player in the game today.

If I'm starting a team tomorrow and can draft any player, there are only two worthy of discussion:

Mauer and Pujols.

I would like to think that the Royals would do the same if they were in the same position, but I have my doubts
