I didn't realize Konerko's contract was deferred. Also, that number is exactly what Gonzo says, the dollars committed to those players signed for next season. It does not take into account buyouts for Peavy ($4 million), Youkilis ($1 milion), and Myers ($3 million). It also does not factor in contracts for arbitration-eligible players such as Humber, Beckham and De Aza (I suspect Humber will be released, however); I also am not sure who, if else, is arbitration-eligible.
