Athletics 25 Man Roster Through 2016

I come cheap - Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

This spreadsheet is adapted from what I used for the SBN Winter Meetings Sim. It’ll be useful to refer to this season.

I thought I'd throw this one up there as a discussion starter for today.  It contains all the probable 25-man roster candidates, and what the payroll looks like so far for 2014.

And here it is.  Also, please let me know if there are any errors:

The situation with Barton is unclear; he could be again offered a non-guaranteed contract and that would lower the overall payroll.  Either way, though, 2014's payroll will rival 2007's as a franchise high.
