    Twins may start talks with Mauer at 5yr/95 million

    Chicago Tribune - The Twins are expected to work hard to sign catcher Joe Mauer to a contract extension this winter.

    The Chicago Tribune speculates that Minnesota might start with an offer of $95 million over five years


    What do you think will it take to sign Mauer?

    7 years, $160MM. I think he gives the Twins a discount

    95 mill over 5 years sounds cheap for a player like him...but i guess the twins are no yankees so maybe mauer will give them a break

    Who is Mauer's agent? If it's that jack *** Boras, no way in hell he'd sign for that.

    $95 mil for 5 would be a huge mistake to come to the table with, it might just end all talks right away. Given his age, I think you have to look for around 7 years and $140 AS A STARTING POINT.

    Agree. I thought the initial offer was almost a little insulting. Didn't they make an offer to Santana for $100mm over 5 years? No way in hell do you offer Mauer less.

    Mauer is younger, better, and far more valuable than Texiera and look what he got.

    I sure hope they go to the table with this.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    of course you do because you're a Red Sox fan and they are willing to break the bank for Mauer.

    I do think they will start higher than that dollar amount(20+ million a season) I see the Twins shooting for a 5 year deal to begin with though. The Twins just always seem adverse to signing really long term deals and because of that I think they will shoot for a shorter deal over paying a couple million more per season.

    of course, except it won't really be breaking the bank for them.

    Years are always more valuable to the player, especially a catcher. If they want to go 5 years it will cost something like $28mil/year. Better to start off with the years they want to work out the money later.

    The very very minimum that the Twins should start with is 6y/120mil, anything else is an insult.
