Bill Smith setting lower payroll expectations

5

Via Jon Krawczynski's AP column today (I can't find a direct AP link, so I just picked a Google result - more page hits for the Willmar paper!): The Twins' payroll reached $115 million this season, and after watching the results on the field, it could be a tough sell to ownership to get to that number again. "I think we pushed it beyond where we should have," Smith said. "Ownership let us go with it in an attempt to win and it didn't work. It backfired a little bit. All of the injuries made it tough. "We want to win and ownership wants to win. We also have to be somewhat responsible. Payroll becomes a function of revenues. We're going to have plenty of money. We're going to win with players not money." If that's not a setup for reducing next year's payroll, I don't know what is.
