I heard Ross is asking for a three year deal. $7 million? I guess that "payroll will be the same or higher than last year" was just another round of BS.
That puts opening day payroll at about $80 million. Take out Santana and we're fielding a team with 24 players at a total of $50 million.
i dont think its just so much about that (whether they are making money or not) as to where they are questioning where we have a 90 million dollar payroll when we actually cut payroll by alot with deffererd money and lost contracts.
its not so much ppl are questioning they are lining their pockets with the money so much as TRYING to line their pockets with the money.hope that makes sense.
i mean,again,i gotta say,im not pretending i know how this works or what theyre doing.and i cant say thats what theyre doing because i dont know.
but i can def see theyre arguement and understand it.
how can you include 21 million on bay,when you are only paying 6.and 15 for wright when you are only paying 11.again,i am not gonna say i have a total understanding of it.but if you do im totally willing to hear it.
if anything,they said at the beginning,payroll was gonna be about the same.maybe go up a bit.and it is,prob is theyre including money they arent paying.so its (understandbly so) being taken as they are "padding" theyre payroll persay ,so noone can say they lied.and they have an excuse why they didnt sign bourn,or offer hairston three years,or ross,or even why they squabled with dickey over 4 million.
