I ask this question of Aaron in the latest Gleeman and the Geek podcast, but I'll ask it of our community, too.
It seems like there is a lot of optimism that the Twins will have an aggressive offseason in free agency and perhaps sign a top starting pitcher (say Lance Lynn or better) or a closer-caliber arm for the bullpen. Or that payroll will increase significantly. I'm wondering - is there any evidence to support this? For instance, have I missed some quotes from the front office where they hinted this would be the case?
If not (and you're one of the optimistic ones), where does this optimism come from?
