    Future Payroll

    The Brewers will have a record payroll in 2014, COO Rick Schlesinger tells MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. "No matter how you measure it, and there are a lot of different ways to measure it, I can tell you that it's going to be north of $100 million," Schlesinger said. The COO went on to add:

    "The way I look at it, you look at the growth of the industry in general, and how we're doing in revenues locally, and it makes sense. ... The fans over the year have supported us, the national television dollars are increasing, the health of the game from a revenue perspective has never been greater, so it's only natural and fitting that we use those monies to invest in our product." - COO Rick Schlesinger, Milwaukee Brewers

    I hope they are the only NL Central team feeling this way. I know the Reds have upped spending over the last 5 years, but I hope we have at least the same marginal increases in payroll.

    Watch out for the Cardinals as well. They currently are 2nd to last in annual profit for their TV deal. It is up in 2017 and then wow. It almost seems unfair how much money they will be adding to their never-ending list of prospects and depth. Not to mention they have a top 3 team in baseball right now...

    I just don't feel good about the Reds' future.

    Well we just need to use Oakland's recipe.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    This year the Reds have shown that money is a problem. I'm not optimistic about signing our rotation long term.

    My goodness that contract will be crazy, for sure.. Wow, that is a bit depressing to hear because you know they already know how to win with league average money...

    I'm hoping by 2017 there are better luxury taxes as well as easier ways to watch games via online which will bring in tons of extra revenue.


    None of that will happen because it's the MLB though

    The Reds have as good or better regional market than St Louis for TV rights. There just aren't many towns of significance in their viewing area even if you extend down into Arkansas and Memphis into Western Indiana/KY and a slice of Iowa. And certainly much better than Milwaukee and Pittsburgh. Milwaukee needs to add payroll fast or lose the halo of drawing 2.5+M fans with crappy teams.

    Once the bloom falls off it is hard to get it back (Cleveland, Balt, Seattle, etc.)

    I'd say that we don't necessarily WANT to sign everyone longterm. I'd say Bailey and Latos but beyond that, you need to find good, young pitching that you can control cheaply for a multitude of years. Granted, that's not easy...but when you have the Reds payroll limitationsl, you can't sign every good pitcher you have longterm.

    If you think the Reds will get a bigger TV deal than the Cardinals, then you are making stuff up. I'll just leave it at that.

    I'm still excited about our upcoming negotiation though. It should give the Reds a lot more flexibility.

    Actually Reds might be getting a huge deal. They have the biggest baseball TV market in the nation.

    Extend Latos and Leake. Let Cueto go after 2015. Extend Bruce when necessary.

    I would start conversations with Billy Hamilton, Cingrani, Stephenson and Mesoraco. Extend early. All of that depends obviously on how these players perform in 14, but the Reds could save some money.

    Conversations with Hamilton and Stephenson? Seriously?

    Let's see how they do in the majors for at least 1 season before we jump the gun on that.
