2008 Player Budget

Well, this will be my first post.  Somehow will have to learn how to write these in this new system.  Was hoping there is a place that would explain it, but haven't been able to find it.  So this may be a mess.  I will also include years of service for players who have not reached free agent status.  This is not indicated as a percentage, rather 1.031 means one year + 31 days.

Pitchers:
Name Service Time 2008 Salary
Boof Bonser 1.102 $425,000 (E)
Scott Baker 1.128 $425,000 (E)
Kevin Slowey 0.063 $400,000 (E)
Livan Hernandez $5,000,000
Nick Blackburn 0.028 $390,000

(E) Estimate

(M) Minimum

(X) I have assumed that Francisco Liriano has signed a one-way contract and will be paid his major league salary while in the minors.  When he returns, unless there are other injuries, one of the other pitchers (Blackburn, Bass, ?) will be sent down which will reduce the overall budget. 

This budget doesn not include bonuses, nor the salaries of players brought up to replace players placed on the DL.
