and happy birthday cmdterps
Happy B cmdterps. I'm sure you'll end up being a better man than your brother will ever be. Although that may not be too difficult.
We are taking out about 20 million from payroll,
When you figure in WMP, NJ, Young, Belliard, Kearns and Beimel the Nats will have close to 24 million shaved off the payroll. All they need to do now is allocate that towards Strasburg and pretend they have spent.
It looks like apart from Guzman, Dunn, Zimmerman and Harris (about 28 million) the Nats have nothing but arbitration eligible players, players with options or year to yeat type players lined up for next season.
