Joe Mauer’s lucrative new deal kicks in this year, and he’ll make $23 million this season. According to Charley Waters of the Pioneer Press (scroll to the near the bottom), the Twins’ catcher is doing so well with off-the-field endorsements, he won’t even have to touch his MLB paychecks, which are supposed to come in bi-weekly to the tune of $1.92 million. If you’re wondering, Mauer’s $23 million this year is only $11 million less than the Pittsburgh Pirates payroll in 2010. [Photo via]
