Joe Mauer contract prompts a completely nonsensical slideshow assessment

It would be a damn shame if Joe Mauer isn't signed to a contract extension prior to the start of the season -- which is now (wonderfully) less than a month away.  While the Twins deserve ample lauding for a savvy offseason that has created a now-feverish anticipation for the opening of Target Field, Mauer's lingering contract status beyond 2010 has created a Spring Training buzz of the ilk that all Twins' followers surely hoped to eschew.  With multiple local media outlets inaccurately gauging the timing, length, and value of an extension to date, here's a City Pages log on that fire that will surely aid the signing process in no way whatsoever.
