The bills have been totaled up, and the final dollars have been put forth – to have the team salaries for all 30 MLB teams.

These totals reflect the 40 man rosters the clubs all carried in 2013, and what position they finished in cash wise versus the other 29 franchises.

We will definitely have many of different articles this offseason, dissecting all of these numbers.

With all of the Free Agents signed recently inked to big deals like: Robinson Cano, Jacoby Ellsbury, Hunter Pence, Brian McCann and Curtis Granderson, we should a bigger spike across the board in 2014.

A’s Win Back To Back AL WEST Titles

The Tampa Bay Rays have been just as frugal and successful as Oakland, and have put forth the 2nd best record in the MLB - since the start of the 2008 year.  Only the Yankees have won more games than Tampa.  Despite this, the club is routinely in the bottom 2 or 3 for overall team salary.

Only the Yankees have won more games than Tampa. Despite this, the club is routinely in the bottom 2 or 3 for overall team salary. Andrew Friedman has been a disciplinary spender, as James Loney signed the most lucrative contract (3 YRs/$21 MIL) during his tenure only in the last week.

Even mediocre players that play Utility positions like: Nick Punto, Brendan Ryan and Clint Barmes are raking in deals for more than $2 MIL annually.

Setup men like Joaquin Benoit, Brian Wilson and Boone Logan are making north of $6 MIL – salaries that used to deem be reserved for Closers.

There are still big Free Agents like Masahiro Tanaka and Shin-Soo Choo to be doled out, both certain to challenge the top 50 Salaries ever given out of ALL – Time in the MLB.

Other top Free Agents like Ervin Santana, Matt Garza and Nelson Cruz are also said to be demanding king’s ransoms – in order to acquire their services.

These totals come directly from the commissioner’s office in New York.  Any type of money that is given out as compensation to the aforementioned 1200+ players on the DL’s is counted.

This also counts singing bonuses, incentives, buyouts, deferrals and non-cash compensations that still has value, all towards the 40 Man Rosters.

The Cardinals only ranked #11 for MLB Team Payrolls in 2013, yet still led the NL Central.  The reigning NL Champs have many young controllable players that should help combat the growth of their budget.

Each team will also split up the pie of a $700 MIL+ a year National TV Broadcasting deal - that could help each organization spend out even more cash than ever in going forward. The current CBA will expire after the 2016 campaign, with a trajectory of salaries all going nothing but up, where is the limit the totals will reach?

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker
