Joe Mauer at 30 Millon a year



 I recently read in a local paper that if Joe Mauer enters free agency, and when, not if the Red Sox and Yankees start a bidding war, Joe's Salary could reach 30 million dollars a season. I as a huge Twins fan want to express that Twins need to get a deal done soon. Christmas has come and gone and no news has come that the parties have agreed to a new contract. Is Joe going to sell out to one of the evil empires out east? I hope not. If losing Johan was like a paper cut, losing Joe will be like a gunshot wound. The Twins will survive and generate new revenue at Target field, but The absence of our hometown hero will give Target field an empty feeling. I am hoping Joe and his agent understand how important he is to this team and fan base. The Twins will give him plenty of money if he stays, I hope that and knowing he is keeping his hometown ball team competitive are reason enough for him to stay. I implore Mr. Smith to get a deal done soon. I want to take my kids to Target Field some day and show them a huge statue of Mauer that is bound to be in front of it if he dose stay and tell them, that was the greatest player the Twins had ever seen, and I was lucky enough to watch him play baseball.
