    I may be in the minority here, but I don't think billionaires are naÔve. I'm not saying the Pohlads didn't cordially mention they had a few extra million in the milk money, but free agency only happens once a year. Our favorite team had this planned for months.

It is likely that you will have league minimums at 3B (Sano), CF (Buxton), C (Pinto), SP (Meyer), SP (Gibson), several bullpen guys, and potentially LF (Hicks) as a starting point.
    And Arcia, Florimon and Dozier still pre-arb, and possibly, Rosario instead, in either the IF or OF (if Arcia is moved to DH duty). The payroll for position players looks like what the Marlins are paying, less Joe Mauer.

    Was that hindsight or foresight?
