07:17 AM ET 09.20 | First, the bad news in Minnesota: The Twins are likely to los 90 games for the third time in as many seasons. They'd need to go 8-3 the rest of the way in order to avoid 90 losses, and the remaining schedule is pretty brutal. The good news is the offseason begins soon, and the Twins -- with Justin Morneau, Nick Blackburn and Mike Pelfrey coming off the books -- could have up to $40 million (in average annual value) to spend this winter, should they choose to. ... If we fill the rest of the roster out with pre-arbitration players who make around $500,000 (near league minimum) - guys like Josmil Pinto, Casey Fien, Aaron Hicks, etc. -- we get a 25-man roster that adds up to approximately $60 million in payroll.

When's the last time they signed a FA of any note, outside of their own organization?

They'll just spend it on Danish and coffee and maybe a new eight track player for the clubhouse.
