Payroll is incredibly concentrated in about 5 guys, FWIW.  I don't know if that's normal, but basically Max, Stras, Corbin, RZ, and Rendon make up 60% of that $200MM (per Cot's spread sheet, it's $125MM of the 25 man's $197MM, including pro-rated bonuses, and $110MM of $197MM v. the CBT  ).  That makes misallocating money to Dozier ($9MM), Sanchez ($8MM), and Rosenthal ($6MM) much more consequential. You can add in Gomes ($7MM) after you have signed Suzuki.  That's $30MM on an older bounce back guy, an end of the line starter who you are trying to squeeze 2 years out of after only 1 bounceback year, a post-TJ guy with control issues, and a redundancy. 
I posted the above in the fire Davey thread, but it is more relevant here.
