Now Harvey, Gee, Baxter, Turner, Valdespin, Duda, Tejada, Edgin, Kirk, and Carson will make about $500k each, and those are 10 players. So all together that is $96MM with 5 spots open on the roster."

Now that they probably saved $3-6M or so of payroll for 2013 from cutting Bay, that gives roughly $5-10M to spend on free agents, which isn't much.
