    Our odds of not finishing last are dwindling.

    Maybe the Yankees will join us for a race to the bottom of the AL east.

    If Toronto remains healthy, then I see them to win at least a wild card berth.  Watch out for the Blue Jays in 2013.

    What will the payroll of Jays be now if this is true?




    I read somewhere that after the trade with the Marlins, it was at around $120 million. 

    Dickey is owed only $5 million in 2013.  I am not sure if Toronto will try and extend Dickey.  I doubt they would trade their top catching prospect for just one year rental of Dickey.

    An old bum that happened to win the 2012 NL CY Award; and a pitcher who a bunch of hitters (including Jeter) dread to face, facing a knuckleball that has a velocity in the mid 80s yet breaks like nobody's business. Since you're not one of them, I'll take their word for it.

    Your bias against knuckleballers has IMO clouded your judgement. Perhaps Wilhelm stunk too.

    I find this doubtful.

    Baseball Ref has them estimated at $112.7M before this move- identical to ours.

    In response to Seeger88's comment:

    Does anyone have an accurate update on the Boston payroll now assuming Napoli is signed?



    Updated:

    Players signed for 2013 (and beyond): We have only10.


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

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

    Napoli       $13M (plus $13M for 2014 and 2015)                        Avg: $13M

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

    Lester       $11.625M ($13M in014 cl option w/ $0.25M b/0)  Avg: $6M

    Pedr $10M ($10.25M in 2014, $11M cl opt in 15 w/ $0.5M B/O)Avg: $6.75M

    Buch $5.5M ($7.7M in '14, $12M-'15, $13M/$13.5M opt '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
    D. Bard         ($1.613M)   2 of  4  $1.7-2M
    A Aceves          ($1.2M)    2 of 3   $2-4M
    A Miller            ($1.04M)  2 of 3   $2-3M
    F Morales         ($850K)   2 of 3   $2-3M

    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

    ~$136M AAV

     

    (Remember there is an amount that must be paid to to the player pension fund that counts against the Luxury tax threshhold, so we may have about $35-40M or so to spend this year and still be below the line.
