The Indians actually have 2 that go past 2020, Carrasco and Ramirez.
And, besides, we are talking about the fact that the Twins have nothing committed past 2019, which is a lot different than 2020.
The Indians have 5, Royals 4, Tigers and Sox 2 each. So no, not normal.

And yet, the Twins will win the AL Central in 2019. Hmmmm.

I'm no expert, but existing contract obligations, unless they are exorbitant and the team is lousy, is prolly pretty small potatoes compared to the other assets and liabilities a potential buyer is weighing.


It's, what?..., potentially a $1.5 Billion sale?


Talk me down, that's a huge number. 


Especially if you bought in for $36 M in 1983. 


I'm lazy on math, but, given that they made money every year since, that's a nice ROI.

The economy won't line up with their plan, if this is the plan.

Twins Manifesto: Build for .500, hope for more.
