I didn't say anything about them in my original post. They have those players regardless of whether they do the A Rod/Soriano trade. Certainly adding those players in the off-season did raise the Yankees payroll (though to be fair you'd also need to compare that to the salaries taken off the books for 2004). My point was that trading for A Rod doesn't significantly add to the Yanks 2004 payroll.
