$8,690,476 from N.Y. Yankees for trade involving A.J. Burnett
$4.5 million from Houston for traded involving Wandy Rodriguez
$75,000 from Boston for traded involving Mark Melancon

The ticket prices shouldn’t have gone to payroll yet, most of that is from increased attendance numbers.

Thanks for compiling this salary info! Are the contracts for Inge and Jonathan Sanchez guaranteed for the whole year? I assume they are.

I manage to go to about 3 games a year. I would like to go to more but it is simply not practical for me. And yes it is cheaper than the other pro teams. I get to maybe one of those per year (thats combined).
