Updated Roster Projections

This totals out to $52.3 million for 24 players (assuming minor leaguers where appropriate). If the payroll is $60, as reported last week, that leaves just under $8 million for a starting pitcher. That should be enough money to be competitive for Weaver/Washburn, etc. It may not get them, but their agents won't laugh in our face, at least.

Now if Bowden could ship Jose Vidro back to Omar Minaya for anything.... A boy can dream, can't he?
