Mauer Signes $33 Million, 4-Year Contract

Both the Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press are reporting on a deal between the Minnesota Twins and Joe Mauer that avoides arbitration and signes the player on for four years at $33 million dollars. The Star Tribune comments that the player will just be turning 24-years-old in April, but that his financial future is "already secure".

The Pioneer Press article goes on to detail the St. Paul native's beginings after being drafted from Cretin-Derham HIgh School, which may seem a little obvious for the Minnesota native to be reading, but this article is written for the Associated Press, while the Star Tribune's article, which focuses more on the deal, is written by a staff reporter.
