Well, this source is reporting that Joe Mauer has signed an extension with the Twins, a 10-year deal, how much is anyone's guess.
Now Buster Olney is tweeting that those reports may have been premature. Damn it Buster, don't ruin this for everyone.
As of now Aaron Gleeman who is someone I consider to be an authority on the Twins has not said anything regarding Mauer, WCCO.com has backtracked somewhat on their story, and there is basically no new news. I'm guessing that things are getting close and it probably won't be long.
