Twins 2010 Payroll Estimate

Thought we'd take a look at the updated 2010 payroll, so here goes: 

C-Mauer-$20M (I'm banking on a raise for this year with his extension)

1b-Morneau-$15M

2b-Punto (uggh)-$4M

SS-Hardy-$5.1M

3b-Harris-$1.45M

RF-Cuddyer-$9.4167M

CF-Span-$470K (my pre-arbitration estimate)

LF-Young-$2.6M

DH-Kubel-$4.1M

Bench: Casilla-$450K

Pridie/Martin-$430K

Morales-$430K

Tolbert-$450K

Total offense: $63.85M

Baker-$3M

Slowey-$470K

Blackburn-$470K

Pavano-$7M

Liriano-$1.6M

Bullpen:

Nathan-$11.25M

Rauch-$2.9M

Mijares-$470K

Neshek-$625K

Crain-$2M

Guerrier-$3.15M

Duensing/Condrey-?

Total staff: $29.34M

So I have total payroll at basically $96.675M, plus whatever the figures come to for Condrey. I'd guess that would put us as a total of around $98M or just under that. Meaning assuming we are giving Mauer a raise right away to $20M, and have a payroll of around $100M, we only have about $2M to work with to find an upgrade at 2b, 3b, and/or SP, plus a potential bench bat. That makes it that much more critical, IMO, to deal Crain/Guerrier and free up that $3-5M or so in payroll.

Anyway, thoughts? I thought this would help us get an updated look.
