Poll: Who Gets Non-Tendered?

The Twins have a lot of arbitration-eligible players do deal with this winter.

Considering our well-documented discussions on the need for change in the organization, and the current state of the payroll for 2011 (between $100 and $105 million if the Twins sign no free agents and sign all arbitration cases), one tactic Minnesota may make to increase payroll flexibility is to non-tender a player or two.

Below is a list of Minnesota's arbitration-eligible players, which stage they'll be at over the winter, and how much they made in 2010. Keep in mind: all these players will be getting raises.
