Contractual Matters: AL Central Payroll Projections

0

Jeff Euston

The Twins and White Sox go all in, while the rest of the division slashes payroll.

About a third of the teams in baseball project to cut payroll for 2011, and three of those reside in the American League Central. The Tigers, Indians, and Royals will scale back to the tune of nearly $80 million combined this season, making the division home to three of the games’ six biggest cost-cutters. But the austerity measures do not extend to the Twins and White Sox, which each figure to make eight-figure payroll increases. Let’s check out the projected 2011 payrolls for the AL Central.

Contractual Matters: NL Central Payroll Projections

Jeff Euston

The Reds try to defend their crown while maintaining the division's third-lowest payroll.

Since 2006, only one club in the National League Central has managed to win more than 91 games in a season. The Reds turned the trick in 2010 and won the division title, despite being outspent by four of their other five Central competitors. Spending will remain flat in Cincinnati this season, but the division’s financial landscape is shifting. Let’s break down the projected 2011 payrolls for the NL Central.

Contractual Matters: AL East Payroll Projections

Jeff Euston

Only one team in the division has hiked spending since 2010, and it's probably not who you think.

The Rays, Blue Jays, and Orioles are not usually part of the conversation when it comes to the financial arms race that is the American League East. Though none of the three will outspend the Yankees or Red Sox any time soon, Baltimore is the only team in the division that figures to start 2011 with a payroll higher than on Opening Day 2010. As the financial details begin to come into focus, let’s check out the projected 2011 payrolls for the AL East.

Jeff Euston

As the Phillies jump to #2 in the majors in payroll, the rest of the division plays catch-up.

Spending is up in the National League East, where all five clubs should rank higher on the list of Opening Day payrolls than they did at this time a year ago. Advancing up the list are the four-time defending champion Phillies, whose payroll jumps from fourth in baseball to second in 2011. They’re followed by the Mets (sixth to fifth), Braves (17th to 14th) and Marlins (28th to 24th). Even the Nationals, who project to reduce payroll slightly, move up from 24th in 2010 to 23rd this year. With the usual disclaimer that the numbers are subject to change, let’s break down the projected 2011 payrolls for the NL East.

The Angels will shell out the most greenbacks, but can they parlay that into a pennant?

The American League West provided one of baseball’s feel-good financial stories of 2010, as the low-budget Rangers dethroned the big-spending Angels, the three-time defending division champions. With their ownership situation now stabilized, the Rangers’ 2011 payroll should approach the $90 million range, where the Mariners generally reside.

The Giants' staff prepares to get pricey, while the Rockies place their chips on Tulo and CarGo.

The National League West is a mixed bag. Each team in the division has won 90 games in a season at least once since 2007. In fact, the wild West has boasted two 90-win teams in three of the last four years. The one team to win 90 twice in that time, Colorado, has never won a division title.

Squawking Baseball: Do New Owners Spend More?

3

Shawn Hoffman

The Rangers have finally been sold, so is it possible that the new owners will start spending much more than Tom Hicks?

In case you missed Maury Brown’s caffeine-fueled tweet binge last Wednesday, the Rangers’ ownership-transfer fiasco is finally (and mercifully) over. After months of endless negotiating and maneuvering, the group that was supposed to get the team all along—led by Pittsburgh lawyer Chuck Greenberg and former Advil pitchman Nolan Ryan—ended up winning a day-long auction, beating out a rival group headed by Mark Cuban. The team is now officially out of bankruptcy, off of MLB’s dole, and presumably ready to start running normally again.

Contractual Matters: Payroll Puzzle

Jeff Euston

Calculating your favorite team's payroll depends on who has the calculator.

April brings warmer weather and games that count. It also brings a flurry of financial numbers: player salaries from USA Today and the Associated Press, franchise values from Forbes magazine, and often an annual piece on team spending from a local beat writer covering the hometown nine.

The three-time defending champion Angels will have payroll flexibility after this season.

Baseball’s smallest division includes a big-spending defending champion, two clubs working on relatively tight budgets, and one team in the middle. Winding down our 2010 payroll outlook (we’ve covered the NL Central, AL Central, NL East, AL East, and NL West), so let’s examine the books of the Angels, Rangers, Mariners, and Athletics.

Divorce takes a bite out of both SoCal NL franchises' future commitments.

The National League West features a curious mix of divorce dramas, humidors, water-shot homers and dry heat. Continuing our 2010 payroll outlook (we’ve covered the NL Central, AL Central, NL East, and AL East), let’s check out the financial forecast for the Dodgers, Rockies, Giants, Diamondbacks, and Padres.

A look at the division that houses the game's biggest spenders.

Only the strong survive in the American League East. The division includes baseball’s two biggest revenue-generating machines and three other clubs whose revenues and payrolls reside tens of millions of dollars down the road. Continuing our 2010 payroll forecast (we’ve covered the NL Central, the AL Central, and the NL East), let’s examine the spending habits of the Yankees, Red Sox, Rays, Blue Jays, and Orioles.

Prospectus Hit and Run: NL Central Competitive Ecology

4

Jay Jaffe

The dirty half dozen throw their money around in different ways and to different extents, but are adaptations coming?

The great Red Smith wasn't a fan of baseball's six division/two Wild Card format. Though he died 12 years before the plan came to fruition, he saw it coming as early as 1978, when he wrote that, "[T]he powers, principalities, and archangels of the game are considering a plan to restructure the major leagues so that almost every team can be a winner, or look like one."
