Don't Trade Mauer

"Should the Twins trade Joe Mauer?" That was the big question today in Minnesota papers, radio and blogs, even though it look like the only guy even raising the idea is columnist Jim Souhan.

It'll never happen. The Twins are contenders, they're almost certainly going to extend Mauer, and even if they don't they'd probably rather grab the draft picks instead of a 20-cents-on-the-dollar trade.

But if you thought the Souhan column was bad, he writes "Trade Mauer for Santana" on his blog today: At least that's the headline as the idea of trading Mauer for a pitcher with $100 million left on his contract- who the Twins balked at paying last time they had the chance- isn't actually mentioned in the piece.

I can't wait for WIP tomorrow- Carlos Ruiz and Brad Lidge for Mauer!
