Really -- it's a small sample size isn't it?
Since the free agent era started, the Twins really have not been that active -- either signing their own free agent stars or letting them go, have they? They traded or traded for some other guys that got a paid like Viola, Brunansky, Shane Mack, Shannon Stewart. This is what I remember off the top of my head.
Guys they've let walk -- who signed for big money (or big money at the time) elsewhere
(Cuddyer and Kubel are making some pretty good money over the next three years)
Guys they re-signed for big money --
Free agents they signed from elsewhere for decent money
