I'm with you on not wanting the let the team get away with going with a minimal payroll. My problem with signing Saunders is that it is a catch-22. If he's your big free agent signing you know 2013 is already a lost cause so why bother making the siging at all?

There is more potential in those arms.
The fact that your claim can't easily be disputed is the most punishing indictment of the Twins I can imagine.
