The figures above are conservative. They assume that no options will be exercised, and don't include yet-unpaid portions of signing bonuses, which would push the Yankees' future commitments well over $400 million. I also assumed that "prospect" Drew Henson (due $12 million through 2006) will switch to football.
Moreover, the table includes only the eight players with at least two guaranteed years left on their contracts: a catcher, two outfielders, two infielders, two starting pitchers and Jeff Weaver, who has less chance than I have of playing for the 2004 Yankees.
The Yankees already have to replace or re-sign three members of their 2003 starting rotation. Irreplaceable closer Mariano Rivera's contract expires after the 2004 season. The farm system has no one likely to help before at least 2006. This could get very, very ugly.
