So reports of a 10 year deal for Minnesota Twins Joe Mauer has been sifting through the airwaves of lately. Awesome! And no pun intended. I'm really happy about this, because this keeps Mauer in Minnesota and it's a good thing for baseball.

In 2009, the Yankees spent over a half-billion dollars on 3 vital players in Teixeira, Sabathia and Burnett. Brian Chashman broke the $200 million dollar budget
