I should've caught this before. That isn't 100% accurate. This is the contract status of our two pitchers:
09:$11M, 10:$12.5M, 11:$12.75M ($2M buyout)
09:$9.5M, 10:$11M, 11:$11M club option ($2M buyout)
So while Harang and Arroyo may
earn $36.25m and $31.25m respectively $25.5m and $22.5m is actually committed to them.
