Quick Payroll Update

Ladies and Gentlemen, your Atlanta Braves!
Chipper: 14 million
Uggla: 13.2 million
McCann: 11.667 million
Hudson: 9 million
Diaz: 2.125 million
Ross: 1.625 million
Hinske: 1.5 million
Wilson: 1 million
Prado: 4.75 million
Jurrjens: 5.5
O’Flaherty: 2.5
Bourn: 6.85
*Lowe: 10 million

Total: 83.717 million for 12 guys

Signing 13 more at an average of 500k (thx, Bronn for reminding me about the Major League minimum increase) brings the total to approx. 90.5 million.

There should still be some money available. If there really is a payroll increase from last year's 94 million (after trades and partial salaries to both Diaz and Bourn), then there should be at least 4 million to spend. I expect the Braves to try and low-ball an offer to Cody Ross to finish the offseason. We still have no backup CF.
