    The Twinkies actually spent some money for a change.

    Joe Mauer, Minnesota Twins agree to 8-year, $184M extension - ESPN

    Congrats, Joe!

    I'm glad he signed with the Twins. He is a hometown hero and that is where he belongs.

    Might be the best catcher of all time

    What a ridiculous statement.

    With names like Bench, Pudge, And Piazza, how does such a thought even cross your mind?

    How about Bull Dickey, and Yogi?

    Joe is a good player, but a long way from being te best just yet.

    He's got the right set of tools to do it but we are what? At least five consistent and healthy seasons away before we can start to talk about where Mauer ranks amongst the greats?

    How can you possibly leave out the likes of Earl Battey ?

    At least.

    Yogi won THREE MVPS and 11 WS rings.

    Good luck matching that Joe.
