    "Marlins Owe Nothing"

    This is interesting info, but I think it's a little false. Didn't Dontrelle sign a multi-year deal before the start of this season.

    The Marlins owe nothin' to nobody

    While writing my weekly article for Heater magazine, I discovered an interesting fact: due to their long-term player contracts, the Yankees owe future salaries of $415 million, twice their current payroll. On the other hand, the Marlins have no salary obligatons beyond this year to any active player.

    For those of you who appreciate the details, here is my estimate of how much each major league team owes in future salaries:
    Code:
    NYA        $414,583,333
    BOS        $238,700,000
    NYN        $226,923,810
    CHA        $209,400,000
    TOR        $205,443,000
    STL        $197,550,000
    LAA        $190,841,666
    LAN        $189,650,000
    OAK        $162,550,000
    CHN        $151,149,999
    DET        $150,740,000
    SEA        $143,291,666
    ATL        $136,666,667
    PHI        $136,508,333
    COL        $134,800,000
    BAL        $133,400,000
    CLE        $128,033,335
    SF         $101,955,001
    HOU        $101,800,000
    ARI         $95,966,667
    CIN         $95,483,333
    TEX         $83,775,000
    SD          $78,333,334
    PIT         $66,916,667
    MIL         $66,224,666
    TB          $65,550,000
    MIN         $63,500,000
    KC          $55,150,000
    WAS         $40,225,000
    FLA                  $0
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    I don't think Dontrelle has reached FA status yet.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Thanks for posting this. But more important than the salaries owed current players, it's what the team owes in loans (in addition to those salaries) that are the killer. See the Diamondbacks. I believe they're still paying for Matt Williams and the ginormous loan it took to assemble that championship squad.

    ...and how much of the $95 million that the Reds owe is pointed to one KGJ.

    To answer my own question. It was a 1 year, $4.3 million deal to avoid arbitration. I thought they'd locked him up long-term. Nevermind.

    The fans shouldn't be that upset either. They've got a good team down there. If they get their stadium situation sorted out soon, they're going to be fantastic in the very near future.
