The Salary Situation

New, comments

Most of the names I left off the list (I believe) are 1st year players who will have their contracts renewed at or near league minimum (.4M).  I'll assume at 50% raise for all the arbitration eligible players.

While Damon and Matsui's salaries are coming off the books, CC's deal calls for a big increase this season.

Let's assume that the Yanks plan to start the season with a $200M payroll.  That leaves some money for midseason reinforcements.

CC, AJ, Joba, Hughes, Aceves/Mitre

The Yanks have roughly $24M to play with, how would you spend it?
