Mauer's agent is in Fort Myers

LaVelle Neal reports that Joe Mauer’s agent, Ron Shapiro, is in Fort Myers meeting with Twins’ execs today. Everyone is saying it’s a routine visit, but Neal reports that, yes, Shapiro and the Twins will be negotiating about Mauer, which they have been doing on and off for a few weeks now.

Ominous note: Neal says “there are indications that progress has slowed recently.”  Given how mum everyone has been about it I’m not sure how you can tell, but Neal knows more than I do about it.  Whatever the case, recall that Mauer likely won’t be negotiating after spring training is over, so if there’s a deal to be done, they best get to it.
