Twins Tickets – 118 Big Ones

by on March 21, 2010 updated April 19, 2014

 Talk about your payday. Minnesota Twins tickets just became practically the sole property of one player. Joe Mauer just signed with the Twins on a deal that will keep him in the Land of lakes for another eight years. And all it cost the Minnesota Twins was a mere $118 million. You read that right. $118 million. at $23 million a year, Joe Mauer now has the onus of bringing the Twins to the World Series practically singlehandedly. It’s the two-edged sword of the big contract. If you have an off year in the MLB, and don’t take your team to the Woreld Series, you’re a target for criticism. So far I haven’t seen any major criticism of the Minnesota Twins over this but the question is not if, but when, the barbs start.
