Charlie Walters: Twins to Seek Free Agents "Within Budget"
Shooter quotes Jim Pohlad:
Pohlad said the Twins . . . will be able to afford some free agents. The Twins' payroll this season is about $100 million.
"We're happy at the level (of payroll) we're at right now," the Twins CEO said.
Regarding Ron Gardenhire returning next year:
"I always reserve the right to change our mind, but I can't imagine that," Pohlad said. "I love him as our manager."
Regarding Terry Ryan returning as GM:
Ryan is technically the interim GM and has said it's too early to decide whether he will stay in the role. Pohlad said he would be "surprised" if Ryan doesn't remain.
