That would put us right around 100 million before arbitration hearings and a possible Shark extension are factored in. and even with those, it's highly doubtful that puts above 110-115 million. For a team like the Cubs, that is not financially crippling.
Flip some players (Garza, Soriano, Lahair etc.) for young pitching and you have a good combination of homegrown talent with Castro, Shark, Rizzo and Barney, mixed with veteran free agents in Grienke, Upton, McCarthy and Baker all while fielding a balanced and competitive team and developing a farm simultaneously.
If the scouting and development team we have does there job correctly, which I 100% believe they will, we won't have to tank or focus on getting high draft picks.
