Spending for spending’s sake might eventually encourage better free agents to give the Twins a look. It might shed the organization of their “always doing it on the cheap” reputation.

And if it is then they have the flexibility to go out and get a costly starter or reliever at the trade deadline -- something the previous regime almost never did.

Simple fact is this: The Twins in 2019 are going nowhere if the current core doesn't put it together, and that's a big question mark. To me, it's a defensible strategy to hold off on major expenditures given those question marks.

2002 they won 70 games in the second half of the season. How do you predict that at the trade deadline?
