Alderson Has $10-15 Million To Spend On 17 Roster Spots
This afternoon in Dallas, Sandy Alderson told reporters that the Mets have between $20 and $25 million to spend this off-season, but that range includes paying Mike Pelfrey and Angel Pagan who will likely earn roughly $10 million in arbitration.
That leaves approximately $10-15 million to spend on 17 other roster spots.
It also means, Alderson must have misspoke again when he said that payroll would be the same with or without Reyes. That’s happening a lot these days.
Yep, it’s as I’ve said all along, an $85 million payroll in 2012, $70 million in 2013.
How does Fred sleep at night?
Sandy will be with Mike Francesa at 5:45 PM.
