2013 Red Sox Payroll
This is for the purpose of figuring out where the Sox stand against the luxury tax payroll (not the same as actual payroll since it's based on average annual value of the contract).
Mike Napoli, $13M
Arbitration Eligible Players (est)
Club Controller Players
De La Rosa
12 x $500K + Tazawa = $6.75M
Transfer to LAD, $3.9M
Player benefits, $12M
Total: $158.16M-171.16M (depending on resolution of Napoli's deal)
Pretty good estimates overall. Salty seems like the outlier. Aggregate guess was pretty close.
