    If you are on the 40 man roster, it varies based on your experience, but all of them are making more than that. And considering the team carries a number of minor league free agents that make 400k plus, it's fair to assume them in the totals.

    Just about every one of those guys has been called up to the big leagues now, or had their contract purchased in November, so each of them are making more than than $33,700 minimum.

    You need to account them when considering the big league player payroll. Guys like Bryan Aug made over 400k last year as a free agent. It's safe to assume the payroll is closer to the 103 million than the 93 million that you had. At least include Zach Cox, who is making 750k this year.

    There are only 25 guys on a ML roster. Most of those guys are not going to make half of the 440k on the 40 man. They get a pro-rated portion of the rookie minimum only if they are called up. But, we really just need the 25 man because the other guys are part of the minor league system and should be budgeted in that manor not in the case of the MLB club.

    McClellan to get 2.5 million in 2012 with incentives based on starts (if he can get any).

    Motte and the team have not yet agreed on a one year deal (uh oh)

    Teams are again reaching out to Roy Oswalt, including the Red Sox and Cardinals. The Red Sox's needs are obvious and the Cardinals' needs can grow depending on whether Chris Carpenter returns and if they decide to move Lance Lynn back to the bullpen. Oswalt, according to a source, is throwing bullpen sessions every other day.

    lets snag Jorge Cantu.... He's got some pop off the bench and can play 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. He can have Greene's spot.

    That a way, Descalso can stop starting games when people need a day off, and only come in as a defensive sub.

    obviously this wont happen... but damn, i wouldn't complain

    Unless Cantu wants to be Memphis depth, I wouldn't want him. He doesn't have much of a bat any longer.

    This team doesn't need much, but I would still take a flyer on talking Oswalt into joining the team....if he would be willing to.

    But Westbrook would be the guy I would kick out, and he is pitching great, and Carpenter is due back at some point.

    If Berkman doesn't come back sometime soon though, I would go after D. Lee. If Berkman comes back, then nm.

    Sounds like we can expect Berkman Friday. From what they said last night anyway.

    I still can't believe the Giants didn't re-sign Beltran but he sure does look good in a Cards uniform

    Would you trust a blind scout? Of course you wouldn't but that's what you do when you simply go by stats

    Only one person doesn't understand the ignore list. Predictable and cowardly

    The Giants could really use Allen Craig

    My point was pretty simple. I would like the Giants to trade for him and give him regular playing time.

    Craig will be the starter next year at first unless Berkman comes back with such an incredible year that they can't let him go, which is unlikely. Craig's not going anywhere lol
