    Their numbers aren't accurate though, at least at cursory glance. For instance, Ludwick signed a two year, $15 million dollar deal this offseason but they have him earning only $2 million.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Ludwick has a weird contract. He only makes 1MM this season. Then I imagine they spread his 2MM bonus over his 2 guaranteed years. His buyout is where he gets the rest of "this year's money".

    Not incorrect, just doesn't account for odd contracts.

    This is very cool, thanks for sharing the link.

    I love the Yankees' chart: 41.9 million dollars for a contingent of third basemen that has so far put up -0.6 WAR. That's got to hurt.

    I'm more appalled that Nick Masset is stealing $3 million. Is that true?

    Big picture though...60 million total for 2009-2013. He's been well worth it, even in spite of his league worst 2011 season. I would never have thunk it.
