    Mr. Lerner,

    The Nats would like to use our final bank appeal to ask for a 10M raise, to 95M. In my prior appeals, I detailed how the Washington market is one that has untapped potential, which could easily support a 130M payroll if people came to the games. Our moves this offseason have done just that. We have added Greinke, Weaver, and Willingham while keeping our farm fairly intact, and our roster young. We've built a team that will be an immediate contender and a long term contender. We would like a 10M raise so that we can fill in the cracks and compete for a World Series ASAP. We need it to lock up SS Rafael Furcal and SP Erik Bedard, who would be key contributors to our squad. Hopefully you understand.

    Dear Rockies Ownership Group,

    we appreciate the bump in payroll you have given us. We would like to request another bump in payroll as we are on the verge of signing mark buerhle and we could use the extra cash to go after one more outfielder. we have made significant upgrades in the bullpen at 2nd base and on the verge of adding another significant upgrade at the starting rotation. the rockies have been adding payroll since 2006. check out our salaries
    # 2010: $ 84,268,333
    # 2009: $ 75,201,000
    # 2008: $ 68,655,500
    # 2007: $ 54,424,000
    # 2006: $ 41,233,000

    we have took major strides in bumping up our payroll and our management feels we are on the verge of the NL West with the additions we have made as well as our payroll. We also have cut some payroll with trading guys like Jorge De La Rosa. Budget flexibility is everything and if we can get a bump from 90 to 100 mil the rockies management would greatly appreciate it. the bump would allow us to make another significant upgrade to the ball club. also tebow has accepted our invitation to throw out the first pitch and seats are retailing as high as $3,000 to see tebow throw out the first pitch and to see the revamped Rockies. we hope you take this into consideration and bump up our payroll...

    thanks

    rockies management

    After careful calculations we will award you with a 14% in payroll from last season, which is 11.75M TOTAL

    Your FINAL cap number is 96,018,333

    Spend it wisely

    Dear Mr. Castellini,

    Fukudome4MVP and I (the Reds management) spoke to you earlier during the offseason regarding raising the cap. Thankfully, you had raised our original payroll from 81M to 95M, and with the 14M you provided us with, we promised you the following things in our original proposal:

    -Pursue a quality starting SS
    -Create depth in the rotation
    -Move some of the albatrosses currently on the team
    -Invest in quality, young players to compliment our solid core

    1) Pursue a quality starting SS:
    We signed Jimmy Rollins to a very decent 6 years, 78 million dollar contract. We feel Jimmys stats are great, and being a former MVP, he has what it takes to help us win the world series. We completed task #1 via the FA market, because the good shortstops in the league are not available via trade. Regardless, we succeeded with this task.

    2) Create depth in the rotation:
    We created depth in our rotation via the trade route. We made the following moves:
    -Acquire Francisco Liriano from the Twins.
    -Acquire Trevor Cahill from the A’s.
    -Acquire Felix Hernandez from the Mariners.
    So you see, we took this rotation: Cueto, Arroyo, Bailey, Leake, Volquez and changed it to Hernandez, Cahill, Cueto, Liriano, Bailey.

    3) Move some of the albatrosses currently on the team:
    The 3 major albatrosses on our team were Scott Rolen (6.5M), Bronson Arroyo (7M), and Francisco Cordero (12M). We moved them all, Rolen to the Brew Crew for a very solid reliever in Kameron Loe, Arroyo and Cordero were salary dumped to the Mets thus creating space for us to make more moves.

    4) Invest in quality young players to compliment our solid core:
    Mr. Castellini, when we talked to you earlier, we promised you we would not shatter our core of Votto, Phillips, Bruce, Stubbs, and Cueto. Well we did not, we kept them all together, and all we did is add to our lineup. Take a look at the players we added and their age:
    -Felix Hernandez: 25 years old.
    -Trevor Cahill: 23 years old.
    -Francisco Liriano: 27 years old.

    So you see Mr. Castellini, we’ve fulfilled all our promises and made this team a legitimate contender for the World Series. On top of adding Felix Hernandez, Trevor Cahill, and Francisco Liriano, we’ve acquired David Wright (full salary paid by Mets, and is only 29 years old, huge upgrade at 3B), we’ve signed Ryan Madson to be our closer (only 31 years old), and we’ve signed David DeJesus (also only 31 years old) to play LF completing a great outfield of DeJesus, Stubbs, and Bruce.

    Comparing rosters:
    Before:
    CF- Drew Stubbs
    2B- Brandon Phillips
    1B-Joey Votto
    RF- Jay Bruce
    3B- Scott Rolen
    LF- Chris Heisey
    SS- Zack Cozart
    C- Ramon Hernandez

    After:
    CF- Drew Stubbs
    2B- Brandon Phillips
    1B- Joey Votto
    3B- David Wright
    RF- Jay Bruce
    SS- Jimmy Rollins
    LF- David DeJesus
    C- Ramon Hernandez (should sign soon)

    You can see the significant upgrades Mr. Castellini, but as of right now, we only have 20 signed players on our roster. That number will rise to 21 if Ramon Hernandez signs with us, however, if Hernandez signs, we will be at 94.1M in cap with 4 players left to sign. As you know, all championship teams need depth quality players to fill in incase of injuries. Each player has a certain role, especially in a sport of baseball in which you have base-stealers, defensive replacements, LOOGY’s, set up men etc.

    In order for us to fill some of these roster spots, we would like to request 16 million dollars to sign 4 players (4M per). We really do not want to dismantle our roster due to cap restractions, as we have built a powerhouse here in Cincinatti.

    This is the start of a new era Mr. Castellini, this will put our cap at 111M and will put us over 100M for the first time. This is the beginning of a dynasty. Our rotations average age is a measly 25.2 years only. With Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, Jay Bruce and David Wright all in their primes, along with the talents of Rollins, Stubbs, DeJesus, and Madson, this team is ready to win now, and for years to come.

    We hope you understand, and we really appreciate your time. Have a good day.

    -Reds Management (Fukudome4MVP and TO)

    We're not comfortable going that high

    Can you not counter with something less? Maybe not as high as 111M, but something a bit more appropriate to your standards. We need the cash to fill out our roster if we are going to be able to compete.

    Yes because we are expected to put a fully productive and world series winner on the field with 95 million bucks, whereas the Cards original payroll was 110M and thats been thoroughly increased, the Brewers are not competing with the roster they have right now, and the Cubs have 135+. Both the Cubs and Cards have 20+M on us in roster space, and after we fullfilled all our promises to your ownership, and we ve put together an offensive jugernaut, and traded for a 25 year old top 3 pitcher, you cannot provide us even 8M dollars to sign like 4 guys for 2M each to complete the depth chart?

    Thank you for showing your commitment to winning Mr. Castellini, I am sure the Reds fans will be ecstatic about our commitment to putting out a complete product!

    While completely destroying the farm

    Additional Comments will result in a loss of cap



    Don't be a baby because your not getting an absurd cap. I don't just give money away.

    Mr Malone, the Braves request a modest 7M increase to bring us to a final payroll figure of 107M, roughly the same amount we spent in 2003. We've managed to add a perennial All-Star at 1B in Kevin Youkilis at a cost of just $6M and perhaps more importantly have managed to hold on to our coveted trio of Teheran/Vizcaino/Delgado. In fact, we haven't touched our top 5 farm system that will be churning out cost controlled talent in the near future. We've been very selective with our moves to this point and haven't spent any exorbitant amounts of cash, but being given a starting payroll that was exceeded once our arbitration cases were settled did put us behind the 8 ball a bit. The extra 7M will go a long way in shoring up the few remaining holes on the roster and allowing us to round out a team that is set to compete now and down the line.
