    you are missing money there cause theres a retirement fund added to the yearly payroll so to the total you have to add around 10 million

    and IFA and draft bonuses arent part of the MLB payroll so they arent committed to that budget

    Ok, Leo lied to me.

    You sure retirement finds are? That goes to the player payroll?

    Given the spreadsheet, the FAs next year are Jeter, Cano, Grandy, hughes, Joba, logan, Mo and others. So if 90 mil is already committed, what would you do with the FAs? Lets hear some intelligent ideas....

    The definition for "payroll" under the newest collective bargaining agreement is as follows: "Payrolls are for 40-man rosters and include averages of multiyear contracts; health and pension benefits; clubs medical costs; insurance; workman's compensation, payroll, unemployment and Social Security taxes; spring training allowances; meal and tip money; All-Star game expenses; travel and moving expenses; postseason pay; and college scholarships."

    All players on the 40-man roster must be accounted for including bonuses.


    The Yankees actual 25 man player salaries must add up to approx. $170million to stay under the $189m.

    Ok, that is the only thing I really want to keep track of anyway.

    Yeah, there are varying numbers because we will never have a clue about all those other costs. Plus, if the 'other' 15 guys on the 40 man roster either get promoted for part of the year or have bonuses, they all get counted. So, if the IFA or draft guys get put on the roster, they get counted.

    Also, if we go over the 'cap' for draft or IFA signings, we get hit with a 75% tax.

    Tough to decipher an actual amount to figure.

    Here is what I came up with for 2014 (in mil):

    A-rod: $26
    Tex: $23
    Cc: $23
    Jeter: Resigned for $10
    Gardner:AA (avoid arbitraton) for $4
    Logan: resigned for $4 (3 yrs, 12)
    Hughes: Resigned for $10 (5 yrs 50)
    Joba: resigned for $5 (5yrs 25)
    All other AA types (nova, etc) at 500K.

    That gives you $121.

    Now the hard part.

    Trade Grandy, Joba and good pitching prospect for Olt and Martin. Saves money. Texas gets two good pitching prospects which can help them. Olt would platoon with Arod. Martin hopefully develop into a good OF.

    Trade Cano to Dodgers for Ethier and Punto. You get a very good hitter that hits for average, about a 20 hr hitter and plays the outfield. Punto slides into 2nd base and platoon with Adams.

    Sign AJ for (2 yrs-20). Helps make up for some power loss plus give stability behind the plate.

    2014 Budget would be $160 (give or take a couple mil)

    Rotation
    CC, Hughes, Nova, Phelps and Warren (or a cheap 5th, maybe Andy on the cheap)

    Jeter/Nunez (SS)
    Ethier/Martin (LF)
    Arod/Olt (3rd)
    Tex (1st)
    AJ/Romaine (C)
    Dickerson/Mustelier (RF)
    Adams (2nd)
    Gardner (CF)

    Thoughts?

    Although the rotation is a bit weak, you just have to get through 2014 and then you can go after a #2, plus Jeter would get less if returning for 2015....

    I think that team can be competitive and be capable of moves moving forward.

    Man, we all keep talking about how A-Rods contract is killing us. How about Tex at 22.5M per for another 4 seasons..

    Too early to start thinking about finding a taker for him too?
