This is interesting info, but I think it's a little false. Didn't Dontrelle sign a multi-year deal before the start of this season.

The Marlins owe nothin' to nobody

While writing my weekly article for Heater magazine, I discovered an interesting fact: due to their long-term player contracts, the Yankees owe future salaries of $415 million, twice their current payroll. On the other hand, the Marlins have no salary obligatons beyond this year to any active player.

For those of you who appreciate the details, here is my estimate of how much each major league team owes in future salaries:


NYA $414,583,333
BOS $238,700,000
NYN $226,923,810
CHA $209,400,000
TOR $205,443,000
STL $197,550,000
LAA $190,841,666
LAN $189,650,000
OAK $162,550,000
CHN $151,149,999
DET $150,740,000
SEA $143,291,666
ATL $136,666,667
PHI $136,508,333
COL $134,800,000
BAL $133,400,000
CLE $128,033,335
SF $101,955,001
HOU $101,800,000
ARI $95,966,667
CIN $95,483,333
TEX $83,775,000
SD $78,333,334
PIT $66,916,667
MIL $66,224,666
TB $65,550,000
MIN $63,500,000
KC $55,150,000
WAS $40,225,000
FLA $0

I don't think Dontrelle has reached FA status yet.

Thanks for posting this. But more important than the salaries owed current players, it's what the team owes in loans (in addition to those salaries) that are the killer. See the Diamondbacks. I believe they're still paying for Matt Williams and the ginormous loan it took to assemble that championship squad.

...and how much of the $95 million that the Reds owe is pointed to one KGJ.

To answer my own question. It was a 1 year, $4.3 million deal to avoid arbitration. I thought they'd locked him up long-term. Nevermind.

The fans shouldn't be that upset either. They've got a good team down there. If they get their stadium situation sorted out soon, they're going to be fantastic in the very near future.
