Via ESPN.com chat:

Jason (St. Louis):

"It sure seems more and more likely Mauer hits FA. If the Red Sox and Yanks get in to a bidding war on him, what potentially do you think he could end up signing for? Is 8 years 225 mil outside the realm of possibility?

"

Jim Callis:

"Not outside the realm of possibility if he becomes a free agent, but I still think he resigns with the Twins."

Now I'll pose the question: Would you commit over $200 million to a catcher?

I wouldn't. I don't care how good he is or if his name is Joe Mauer, the risk is simply too high at that price.

Where can I comment?
