Not so fast on that Mauer deadline Yahoo


Looking like perhaps another "Creative" moment in the highly respected (note sarcasim) Yahoo Sports newsroom. Could it be, they have telepathy and found out about the deadline before Mauer had thought of it? Inquierer Minds want to know!  From the Sporting News.

 

Joe Mauer denies setting deadline for contract talks

staff reports Dec 1, 7:16 pm EST

American League MVP Joe Mauer on Tuesday denied a Yahoo! Sports report that said Mauer had set a deadline of opening day for contract negotiations with the Minnesota Twins. Mauer can become a free agent after next season.

Mauer texted the Twins’ Web site and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune to respond to the report. He told the Star-Tribune, "(T)hat’s news to me." He told the team’s Web site: "I’m not going to react to every story/rumor that comes out or comment on any negotiations. As far as that report, I don’t know where that came from."

Last week, at a press conference announcing his MVP award, Mauer said he didn’t need to get a deal done by a certain time. The Twins reportedly would like to complete a deal with Mauer by Christmas.
