I'll lob this grenade into the mix.What if Mauer has an incredible 2018?.330 and 20+ dingers....along with a solid first base.He wants to stay in Minnesota for obvious reasons.Retiring after a year like that isn't likely.What do the Twins do then?

This isn't a grenade. The Twins only have one above average player to play 1B/DH in 2019 and he is currently the starting 3B. 

If Mauer has the season that you suggest as a grenade then you first -party like it is 2009 and second - bring him back on a modest deal if he is interested

Is 2016 2017 2018 the year that a good pitching prospect is truly blocked by 5 good pitchers in the starting rotation? 

Offseason (noun) - a time to propose trades assuming opposing GM's can't do the same basic analysis

That would be his 2nd best season, by a mile, at age 34.
Aside from a steroid guy, has that ever happened?
Just not realistic, IMO.
