Word has leaked out that MVP Joe Mauer has reportedly agreed to a 10-year deal with the Minnesota Twins. WCCO-TV in Minneapolis was the first to report the deal, but no financial figures were mentioned. UPDATE: Many people are now saying this report is incorrect, however, the Twins remain hopeful that they can sign Mauer.

Obviously, there have been a lot of questions surrounding Mauer. Could the Twins resign him? Would he go to a major market? And it appears, for now, that the Twins might have enough money and Mauer will become one of those rare great players who may spend his entire career with one team. We'll see how this turns out.

I have no idea what the specific financial figures are, but word has been it would be around $200 million. Not shabby for a guy who's 26.
