    Re: 2007 Reds!

    Well barring a trade the salary will look like this:

    Guys making over a million signed already:

    Griffey- 12.5M
    Dunn- 10.5M
    Milton- 10M
    LaRue- 5.2M
    Arroyo- 3.8M
    Aurilia- 2M (if option exercized)
    Hatteburg- 1.5M
    Castro- 1M (if option exercized)

    Arbitration:
    Lohse- likely 1M or less
    Harang- likely 3.5-4.5 M
    Freel- likely 2 M

    500k on average:

    Encarnacion
    Donorfia
    Ramirez
    Bray
    Coffey
    Phillips
    Ross
    Majewski
    Claussen
    Belisle
    Standridge
    Watson
    Votto?

    23-24 players...

    Commitments are already in the 58 million neighborhood... keep in mind out of these 500k or less guys probably 1-2 will not be on the roster very much. Some of the aribitration figures might have been a little high and a lot of the guys I said 500k on average will get closer to 300k.

    Shopping probably includes as it stands:

    -1-2 bullpen arms (ideally 1 LHP and 1 RHP). (about 1.5M on average per arm)
    -One decent but moderately priced bench bat. (less than 1M)

    -Starter depending on how much $ is left.

    LaRue and Milton trades would leave about 20-22M for free agents, however if a 65M budget.

    Redsandrails,

    You don't have Cormier listed. Remember they signed him for next year to get him to agree to the trade.
