Twins’ Mauer near-unanimous pick as AL’s MVP

Twins’ Mauer near-unanimous pick as AL’s MVP

Joe Mauer is probably one of the greatest players to wear a Twins uniform and is beyond a doubt a player that every team in baseball would love to have crouched down behind their dish wearing their uniform. But for now that honor belongs to Minnesota. Speaking of honors its been 33 years sense a catcher won the MVP. That honor belonged to Thurman Munson in 1976. Mauer is also the first person to win back to back batting titles sense Nomar Garciapara in 1999-2000.

Its uncertain wether of not Mauer will remain a twin at the end of his contract, the Twins are not known for spending the money to hold on to their stars. If they are smart they will just hand him a blank check and let him fill it out at the end of his current contract.
