Payroll Overview - Post Bullpen Reconstruction Edition

So after night's "Bullpen Infrastructure Plan" I'm hungry for more new faces and wonder if there's any budget left.

Here's where I think we stand. Some notes:

  • I've tried to be a little high on estimates for arbitration/at or near minimum salary guys.
  • I include Paulino at last seasons salary because I thought I read some wiggle room on whether or not they'd consider bringing him back.
  • I listed pitchers in order of salary - not quality.
  • Interesting that there are three starting position players making over $1m, three starting pitchers and five relievers . . .

BOTTOM LINE: I get to $88.65m with three spots open on the 25-man which makes it sounds like there's $5-10m of wiggle room to get to $95-100m . . .

BUT I have a feeling that the $100m number covers either all the 40-man roster salary OR includes other costs like pension/health insurance that go into the official luxury tax payroll calculation. But it'd sure be nice to be able to spend another $10m though.
