From The Catcher Files

In news that everybody should have seen coming, Joe Mauer signed a contract extension with the Twins.  It's for 8 years and $184 million.  I'm very happy about this.  He is a local player (for them) and is the future of their organization.  He is the best catcher in baseball and will probably go down as one of the greatest players of all time.  #7 for the Twins will be special for a long time.

In not as life-changing catcher news, Mike Jacobs has catcher's equipment back.  Earlier this week he reportedly caught a bullpen session.  He also caught one last year with the Royals.  I really hope he makes the team, and I really hope he gets the chance to catch in a game this year.

Let's Go Mets!
