    The Marlins payroll would pay for two of the Yankees average salaries.

    Of course, the Marlins have themselves to blame as much for that as the Yankees do.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Re: MLB Opening Day Payrolls

    Is there ever a mention of MLB payroll anymore where the first thing mentioned is NOT the Yankees? (sorry, I'm a little testy today)

    The most notable thing to me is the Indians' payroll. Now that's impressive.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Tigers are at $ 82.3 million? Other than Pudge, who else is earning the big coin on that squad?

    Re: MLB Opening Day Payrolls

    anybody else think it is funny how Boston fan always complains about Yankees payroll, they are 20 million higher than third...arrrgh, i can't stand boston fan, sorry had to vent...I am a Reds fan first, Yankees second, grew up in NY...only people that should be able to complain, are people under 70 million, tickets for the Marlins games should be less expensive than the dayton dragons, you couldn't pay me to go to their games if i lived there
