Are you effing kidding me? I'd stimate the payroll to be close on $130m if this goes through.


That's a hefty $9.4 million to be able to do that to the payroll.


Wow, that's nowhere near what I thought it would be. I guess it makes sense. My appologies DK.....

How could the Mets be under 90 million? 12 mill for Delgado + 10 for Wagner plus 18 for Beltran plus 6 for Matsui (or 9 in Kent's case) + 6 for LoDuca + 5 (or so) for Cliff Floyd + 8.5 for Benson + 4 million for Trachsel + how much for Pedro? Even without, that is 70 million. That is only 8 of 25 players... and is David Wright a super-two Arbitration player? how much does Reyes get?

I read somewhere (Peter Gamons?) that the NYM were at 110 million.

I believe that could pay both Reyes and Wright with the money I find in my couch seats.

I'm not saying the Mets can't afford what they are paying, just that they are paying way more than 90 million.

I'm about to crash but tomorrow I will post the numbers. The Mets payroll is under $100M.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

NY Daily News wrote:The Mets, according to MLB, currently have around $110 million in committed salaries for next season.



That was before the Kent/La duca deals.

I would trust these numbers because newspapers are anal about checking these kind of facts. Large papers have hole departments devoted to it.
