They assume another $33 million from our arbitration eligible players. Which would put us at around $57 million in commitments. Meaning we'd need to spend another $30M+ in free agents just to reach last year's payroll.
If they are right about Yolmer getting $6.2, then Yolmer probably won't be in a Sox uniform next season. At least I hope not at that price.
