One comment on “Final 2015 payrolls for 40-man rosters

  • Name

    Damn, the Phillies paid that much for that craphole of a team?

    I guess most of that can be blamed on Cliff Lee, who after the buyout made a tidy sum of 37.5 million this year, about 1/4 of the entire payroll. Another 1/4 was spent on bench level production from Howard and Utley.

    This is why you dont tie up half your payroll in 2-3 players
