Mauer Signs- No He Doesn't!

Twins fans temporarily got their hopes up this afternoon when WCCO's Mark Rosen reported that they had agreed with Joe Mauer on a 10-year contract extension at undisclosed terms. Oops... several other top reporters, both national and local, reported soon after that no deal was done.

I'm sure the deal will still happen- although I wouldn't imagine it'll be for ten years- but this is pretty embarrassing for Rosen. He was, however, the reporter who ultimately broke the news that Favre was indeed coming to the Vikings, even though half of ESPN's reporters were camped out on his lawn at the time.

I would be surprised if it was anything short of 10y - The Twins have to hitch onto Mauer and give him a long guaranteed contract
