I have been following Fay on twitter and have read reports of only having about $12M to use. Well if I have read the salaries correctly, and Cot's is correct, and I use the MLBTR arbitration projections then shouldn't we have about $17M to work with?

** MLBTR projections
Arroyo 7
Phillips 12.5
Votto 9.5
Rolen 8
Cueto 5.4
Chapman 4.7
Bruce 5
Masset 2.8**
Cairo 1
Bray 1.4**
Hanigan 1.3
Arredondo 1**
Stubbs 0.5
Bailey 1.8**
Janish 0.8**
Leake 0.5
Wood 0.5
Heisey 0.5
Ondrusek 0.5
LeCure 0.5
Cozart 0.5
Mesoraco 0.5
Frazier 0.5
Francisco 0.5
Cordero buoyout 1

Total: $68.2M leaving $17M available

Would that not be enough to sign Beltran and Cordero?

I would think so but I doubt you can get Beltran for only one or two years -- unless he's willing to gamble that he can improve his bargaining position with a short term contract.
