Twins manager living in fantasy world

joemauer1 Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire is living in a fantasy world when he proclaimed that he is confident that a new deal will get done with all star catcher  Joe Mauer. 

Name the Last great player that the Twins kept?  Go ahead I’ll wait…….. It certainly isn’t hard to think of all the great player they have traded away in the name of saving money ala Johan Santana and Tori Hunter. I guess the possibility exists that Mauer could give the Twins a huge hometown discount but It would seem that he is in for a huge payday. I would think he would be able to get six years and around 120 million dollars or so on the open market.

Who knows anything could happen I guess, I just don’t see the Twins paying Mauer what a team like the Red Sox or Yankees would be willing to dish out for the best catcher in baseball.
