How not to spend $100 million


[url][sign in to see URL]

San Francisco ($101.5 million) (71-91)and the Chicago White Sox ($100.2 million)(72-90).

What an embarassing return on the investment.

Re: How not to spend $100 million


NEW YORK -- The Yankees did finish first in something last year -- spending.

While their streak of AL East titles ended at nine, the Yankees wound up with a record payroll of $218.3 million.

The World Series champion Boston Red Sox were a distant second at $155.4 million, according to information received by clubs from the commissioner's office. The Los Angeles Dodgers were third at $125.6 million, followed by the New York Mets ($120.9 million), Chicago Cubs ($115.9 million), Seattle ($114.4 million), Los Angeles Angels ($111 million), Philadelphia ($101.8 million), San Francisco ($101.5 million) and the Chicago White Sox ($100.2 million).

!@#$ me.

12.5% increase in spending? How much of that is the deferred money becoming payroll I wonder? Or is the "payroll" nomenclature just a way of saying "all the money leaving the accounts next year"?

Re: How not to spend $100 million


well they spent almost $40M on two guys




it is pretty sad though to see teams like the Rockies and D-Backs, who have payrolls much lower than the Giants to be doing much better



thats where scouting and developing young talent comes into play and the Giants are probably the worst team in the league in that aspect

The Cubs and Mariners aren't exactly cranking out stars either. It more has to do with how and on who you spend your money. In theory, you don't have to field a team of homegrowns like the Rox if you've got $100M to spend.

Re: How not to spend $100 million


Sabean's not a businessman, he's a scout. He's used to using his per diem and fudging receipts to waste money then he is on being frugal and prudent and getting a nice return on his money.

No offense to scouts, but their job isn't to make money, it's to find talent. That's all I mean. Portraying Sabean as an incompetent bumbler in both arenas is a bonus.
