    I always knew we could build a contender cheaply, but then have to invest some dollars to keep it together.

    I like the fact that there are only a handful of teams that are spending a significant amount more than the Reds
    Pete Rose will be leaving the Montreal Expos to become player - manager for the Cincinnati Reds

    It's amazing that the Reds might have a higher payroll than the Cubs this year. It's also a little concerning as the Reds are tapped out and the Cubs could probably double their payroll at any moment with a few big signings.

    $107 million seems high to me... They have $78M committed (disregarding the $$$ from the Indians) before arbitration. I don't think they'll be giving out $29M in arbtitration. Although, it will be in the $100M range, $107M seems a little high

    There's a lot that goes into "payroll" other than just player salaries for the year.
    A lot.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Wherever the payroll does end up will still reflect BobC's willingness to open up the pocketbook. It's going to take some getting use to for Reds fans. Especially those of us who spent our formative years dealing with the Joey Hamilton's and Jimmy Haynes's of the 2000s.

    Just wait until we sign a new tv contract. This may be a foreshadowing of things to come.

    The new deal both excites and worries me.....I know its a MUCH smaller TV market than LA, and Cleveland just got $40 million/yr but I think the Reds being one of the top ratings teams should get somewhere in the middle....I've seen many people mention what Cleveland got..maybe as high as $50 million/yr, but why so 'low' compared to teams that don't have the physical eyes watching on TV..isnt that what the advertisers pay for? would be sweet for this team to pull an $80-$100 million/yr deal for radio and TV combined, but I think they get screwed at $50 million (even if it is $40 million more than they get now).....just my 2 cents

    "Using Baseball Prospectus' contract database, arbitration projections from MLB Trade Rumors and expected salaries for the remaining free agents likely to garner major-league contracts, Y! Sports estimates opening-day payrolls of teams' 25-man rosters will total about $3.15 billion, a 7.1-percent increase from last year's opening-day figure of $2.94 billion."

    "Teams will spend between $900,000 and $1.3 million on salaries for rostered minor leaguers."

    Where's the controversy here?

    If I read it right, the 107 includes the estimated salaries of the outstanding arbitration cases also

    Its amazing to me to watch it continually increases under Castellini. Paul Daugherty had a nice piece on Bob on his blog this morning.

    I'm not buying that 107M, only way I can come up with that total is they have us losing every arbitration case while not factoring in the 3.5M we got for Choo along with the money of players on the 40 man roster. Once its all said and done we should come in just under 100M in the standard payroll like they show on cots unless we sign Mat or Homer to a long term deal and pay more now to save later.
