Under those projections, Bailey, Leake, Chapman and Latos would make 11M than in 2013.
There's your Arroyo money for 2014 to hold the rest of the staff + Chapman together. Chapman's case will be interesting.
Hanigan 2.3M and Heisey 1.7M
Corky - was that a joke?
The Reds need to decide if they want Latos or Bailey to lead the staff for the next half decade plus. Once they make a decision, they need to get that guy signed immediately and trade the other pitcher for a big return ASAP. The team simply can't afford both guys moving forward.
Also, Heisey is rapidly moving towards DFA territory. I like him, but I don't know if he's worth $2M+. It's a drop in the bucket in the scheme of things, but there is such a thing as death by a thousand cuts.
