Humor me here...can someone explain why "spending just to spend" makes no sense?
While you're at it, explain to me why "not spending just to not spend" does make sense.
The "don't spend just to spend" people seem to think the rest of us would be OK with Terry Ryan giving Correia $25 million a year instead of $5 million because at least the Twins would have close to a $100 million payroll that way. It's absurd, but then their point is absurd.
Not spending just to not spend is basically what the Twins have done for all but 1-2 years of their existence.
