projected 2014 payroll

New York Mets

Bobby Bonilla $1.2

Jason Bay $7

David Wright $20

Jon Niese $5

Ike Davis $3.5

Daniel Murphy $6

Bobby Parnell $3.5

equals 46.2-million

these players are 1st time arbitration eligible

Mike Baxter $1

Dillon Gee $3

Ruben Tejada $2

Justin Turner $1.5

equals 53.7-million

these 16 players are pre arb that means they make the league min $500,000 equal 8-million i'm sure some of these names will be replaced with different young guys also making the minimum so just think of them as placeholders for Montero and Puello and others

Robert Carson, Matt Harvey, Lucas Duda, Josh Edgin, Jeurys Familia, Jeremy Hefner, Jenrry Mejia, Anthony Recker, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Jordany Valdespin, Collin McHugh, Travis D'arnaud, Zack Wheeler, Juan Lagares, Collin Cowgill, Zach Lutz

equal 61.7-million

there are 15 players not on the 25-man but on the 40-man that make the minimum of $78,250 that equals $1.173-million

so the total 2014 Mets payroll is 63.43

so tell me again why the Mets have to trade for OF and can't just buy what ever they want?
