    In response to Edgarpost's comment:

    Only $10 mil. more can be spent this coming year to remain under the luxury tax threshold.



    False.

    The luxury tax is based on the average yearly salary of players on the 40 man roster plus the pension fund contribution.

    Players signed for 2013 (and beyond): We have only 9.

    ***Add S Drew's ~$10M


    Lackey       $15.25M  ($15.25M in 2014 & min wage in 2015)    Avg: ~$14M

    Papi           $14M  (plus $1M bonus & $11M for 2014)               Avg: $13M

    Dempster $13.25M (plus $13.25M for 2014)                             Avg. $13.3M

    Lester       $11.625M ($13M in 2014 club option w/ $0.25M buyout)  Avg: $6M

    Pedroia     $10M        ($10.25M in 2014, $11M club opt in 2015 w/ $0.5M B/O)Avg: $6.75M

    Buchholtz  $5.5M  ($7.7M in '14, $12M in '15, $13M/$13.5M opt in '16 & '17)   Avg: ~$7M

    Gomes       $5M    ($5M in '14)                             Avg: $5M

    Uehara      $4.25M

    D. Ross      $3.1M  ($3.1M in '14)                         Avg: $3.1M

    Iglesias     $2.063M (Then arb)                           Avg: ~$2M


    ~$98M in signed players.  (Luxury Tax -  Average Anual Value: ~$87M)



    Players with arbitration years remaining:
     Player      (2012 salary) Arb year(s) Est. 2013 salary
    Ellsbury        ($8.05M)    3 of 3    $8-10M
    A Bailey          ($3.9M)    2 of 3    $3-5M
    Saltalmacchia ($2.5M)    3 of 3   $5-7M
    C Breslow   ($1.795M)    3 of 3   $3-4M
    R Sweeney   ($1.75M)     3 of 3   $2-3M  Non Tendered
    D. Bard         ($1.613M)   2 of  4  $1.7-2M
    A Aceves          ($1.2M)    2 of 3   $2-4M
    M Aviles           ($1.2M)    2 of 3   $2-4M
    A Miller            ($1.04M)  2 of 3   $2-3M
    F Morales         ($850K)   2 of 3   $2-3M
    Rich Hill           ($725M)   3 of 3   $.8M-1M Non Tendered
    Total Est: $33M to $43M  Avg: ~$38M

    That puts our budget at about $136M, not counting pre-arb contracts and any players we will acquire.

    The Luxury Tax number is now about : ~$124M

     

    Pre-arb players (on 40 man roster):
    Middlebrooks
    de la Rosa
    Doubront
    Lavarnway
    Ciriaco
    Tazawa
    Mortensen

    Gomez

    Sands
    Nava
    Kalish
    Beato
    Melancon
    Webster

    C Carpenter

    A Wilson

    S Wright

    D Butler

    C Vazquez

    A Hassan

    After adding these "small" contract totals, My guess is we are not at:

    ~$147M + $10M Drew = $156

    ~$136M AAV + $10M Drew = $146M for the luxury tax not counting the retirement contribution.

    Re: A look at the 2013 payroll and beyond

    I missed the LA Dodger payment and I lowered Lackey's cost due to the injury clause option. I'm not sure if the Sox can excerise that option now to lower the luxury hit by about $2.5M or not.

    I wasn't sure about the $10M retirement amount, but I'll trust this guy is right.

    I guess his numbers look pretty accuarte, except I don't get why he projects the last 11 slots on the roster to cost $11M. If they are prospects, they should be at about $6M total.

    If we throw Naps back in the pond, we'll have $23M to spend, assuming we don't trade away any contracts this winter or next season (Salty?).

    "The deal of the century" actually has still cut a lot of payroll beyond 2013.
