Jim Crane told Brian McTaggart that he expects payroll to be around $60m.
25 players, $60m. That works out to be about $2.4m per player on the Opening Day roster. But of course that's now how this team works.
Carlos Lee ($18m), Brett Myers ($11m), Wandy Rodriguez ($10m), and Brandon Lyon ($5.5m) will make up 74.1% of the payroll (if it's pegged squarely at $60,000,000). More on this later.
