Joe Mauer recently signed a contract reportedly worth $184 million through 2018. It's the richest contact in history for a catcher.
Mauer is a great catcher and I loved watching the story about him on the MLB Network after he won the AL MVP last season.
And, now, I'd like to thank Minnesota for paying him so much. Because when the Twins can't afford to pay him anymore, there's only going to be one team who will be able to afford him.
I'm hoping that's going to be 2-3 years away instead of like 4-5, but I am guessing by 2015, Joe Mauer will be a New York Yankee. Anyone want a Mauer rookie card now before they get too expensive in five years?
