Also, The New York Yankees payroll is also back under 200 million, despite having the three highest paid players.

Thanks for the info.

The Yank's payroll may have gone down (I don't know) but I believe that with luxury tax and revenue sharing the Yankees' payroll will be well over $200 M.

Despite spending all of that money this off-season, the Jays surprisingly are still in the bottom half of the league in payroll. If they draw well this year, and the team succeeds, I can't see any reason why the Jays couldn't be up near the Angels and White Sox of the world within the next few years. Ted Rogers can certainly afford it.

And yeah, the Yankees got rid of a lot of salary when Kevin Brown's contract was up. Though, it's still crazy to see 198 million up there.

yeah good info, the dude.

So how much does team chemistry cost? Maybe Tino, Brosius or O'Neill knows that answer.

This is where you cit the 1970s per game fights and championship baseball. :-b

It is the old chicken and edge question.

Does good chemistry breed winning/ or does winning build chemistry.
