The Twins have been giving out big contracts the last several years and any contract Correa would get wouldn't put the Twins over any self-imposed salary cap. I highly doubt ownership cares HOW the front office spends that salary space. A deal for Correa wouldn't put the team over budget so what would it matter to ownership? In fact, one Carlos Correa surely brings in more revenue than four bargain basement free agents. If a deal for Correa, one of the other shortstops, Rodon or any other big budget free agent doesn't come to pass, it'll be because either the player wants to be elsewhere, or because the front office shied away from committing X% of the payroll to a single individual player or committing X amount of years to a player. No deal most likely means that someone in the front office is too scared to tie their future employment to one deal that can be easily pointed at as being a mistake. The quoted post sounds more like the Terry Ryan era than the Falvine era, but Correa’s contract could be still in the Falvine threshold but beyond DSP’s and/or JP’s. We don’t exactly know what the parameters are for individual contracts of any of the head honchos at 1 Twins Way. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
