In response to lasitter's comment:
Moon: I appreciate your previous payroll / luxury cap analysis, but could you spell it out for me as to how much the Sox have left for 2014 with / without Lester? Assume nothing is obvioius. Thanks.
$134M without Lester
$145M with Lester
(not counting extensions, FA signings, trades or player releases)
The luxury tax limit next year is $189M.
That leaves us $55M to spend without Lester.
That leaves us with $44M to spend with Lester.
We will have some gaps to fill in...
