The Minnesota Twins kicked off their annual winter TwinsFest Friday without one important ingredient: that pesky contract extension for All-Star catcher Joe Mauer. However, the club is optimistic that last season’s AL MVP will ink a new deal before the start of Spring Training.
The contract is going to be a whopper for sure, and manager Ron Gardenhire is looking forward to it.
“I’ll be happy when he does sign. He can buy me a beer. Probably two. Maybe three,” he chuckled.
