In response to Seeger88's comment:
Does anyone have an accurate update on the Boston payroll now assuming Napoli is signed?
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
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):
de la Rosa
After adding these "small" contract totals, My guess is we are not at:
(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.
