I was able to find how much their being paid this year (copied and pasted below), but when do these contracts expire? More specifically I'm talking about the top 3 earners plus Baez, Payton, Walker, and Bradford. Combined, those 7 players make just under $43 million this year.

Thinking ahead to this off-season, if Texeria is looking for something in the range of $25 mil. per, the full cost of going after him (overall team salary)would be a lot less if a few of those players came off the books next year.

2008 Salaries
Rk Player Salary (US$)
1 Aubrey Huff $8,000,000
2 Melvin Mora $7,826,914
3 Ramon Hernandez $7,500,000
4 Brian Roberts $6,300,000
5 Danys Baez $6,166,666
6 Jay Payton $5,000,000
7 Jamie Walker $4,500,000
8 Kevin Millar $3,800,000
9 Chad Bradford $3,666,666
10 Daniel Cabrera $2,875,000
11 Steve Trachsel $1,500,000
12 George Sherrill $980,000
13 Juan Castro $975,000
14 Adam Loewen $816,000
15 Jeremy Guthrie $770,000

Man, I posted something earlier this season with all of the years remaining on contracts (not every player, but basically anyone who sees decent playing time). I wish I could remember them all, but I recall losing track because so many of them have either 1 or 2 years left on their contract. Here's a stab at some of them, though I can't promise they're all correct...

Player / Contract Ends After This Season

Aubrey Huff 2009
Melvin Mora 2010 w/ option
Ramon Hernandez 2009 w/ 2010 option
Brian Roberts 2009
Jay Payton 2008
Jamie Walker 2009
Kevin Millar 2008
Chad Bradford 2009

Albers 2008
Bynum 2008
Bradford 2009
D. Cabrera 2008
Burres 2008
Cintron 2008
Cormier 2008

R Hernandez 2009
Jones 2008
Loewen 2008

Payton 2008
Quiroz 2008
Sherrill 2008
Roberts 2009
Sarfate 2008
Scott 2008
Walker 2009

But the whole arbitration thing confuses me, so I know all of there contracts expire on those date but that is what the program says

markakis contract doesnt expire until 2011 and we are going to sign him to an extension, and i thought that jones and scott were locked up even though u meant through the date guys like them are still under contract i think

So all the big contracts - Bradford, Huff, Hernandez, Mora, Walker, etc - are signed through next year. oh boy. at least they all expire at the same time.

Just saw this on http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/8...gh-waiver-wire

"DH/OF/1B/3B Aubrey Huff, Baltimore
Contract situation: Roughly $2 million remaining on $8 million contract for 2008. Free agent after season.

Huff has shown a revived bat this year, and can fill in at a number of positions. With the Orioles pushing to replenish their farm system, and owner Peter Angelos finally convinced to build an organization. Huff is the perfect player to dangle to add a prospect."
