Many Twins fans have expressed disappointment in the Twins lack of spending. Do the Twins need to spend more money? The answer to this is no. The 2012 payroll is sitting at roughly 100 million, which ranks among the top in all of baseball. Also, spending more money does not always translate to wins, for example the 2011 Twins. The Twins will now have the flexibility to make a trade at the trading deadline and have the chance to acquire more talent. Finally, when Terry Ryan was in his first stint as General Manager, his payroll never topped 71 million. The Twins had a lot of success during his first tenure, and it shows that more money does not necessarily mean more wins. The Twins will be out to prove people wrong in 2012.
