2005 Payroll Update...

So, since we kind of know what salary arbitration is going to look like, I thought I'd give an update on total salary figures.  This is based on the 29 Players who will be fighting for spots ont the opening day roster.  If anyone has updated figures, i.e., I've heard different figures for the Yabu contract - 1.0 Mil vs. 0.7 Mil - Please post what you know.

From what I can see, we've got money to spend boys and girls...Schott said that the final payroll budget would be 61.5 Million.  

I figure the 4 Players left off the opening day roster will make up for any money I'm missing with regards to rookie, 2nd year, and non-arbitration eligible players...

Where's the 11+ Million Dollars?
