Been sitting on this a while, but since we're done this year, off we go:

Re-signing scenarios with estimated signing amounts:

Note: Expected salary remaining is based on a $108M payroll for 2011.

Scenario 1:

Re-sign Konerko, Vizquel

Konerko - $13M (hometown discount, other teams will offer more)

Vizquel - $1.25M

Total = $98.25 -- remaining - $9M

Scenario 2:

Re-sign Konerko, Pierzynski, Vizquel

Konerko - $13M

Pierzynski - $5M (2 year deal plus team option)

Vizquel - $1.25M

Total = $103.25 -- remaining - $4M

Scenario 3:

Re-sign Konerko, Vizquel, keep Jenks

Konerko - $13M

Vizquel - $1.25M

Jenks - $7.5M

Total = $105.75 -- remaining - $2.25M

Scenario 4:

Re-sign Vizquel and Putz

Vizquel - $1.25M

Putz - $3.75M

Total = $89 -- remaining - $18M

Scenario 5:

Re-sign Vizquel, Pierzynski and Putz

Vizquel - $1.25M

Pierzynski - $5M

Putz - $3.75M

Total = $94 -- remaining - $13M

Scenario 6:

Re-sign Vizquel only

Vizquel - $1.25M

Total = $85.25 -- remaining - $22M

The big question is will the Sox offer Konerko and Pierzynski arbitration to get compensation picks. If so, there's a chance one or both will accept. Paul is less likely, since he'll have plenty of interest on the open market.

It's also possible Kenny could move a starter for a bat this offseason, if the organization thinks Sale could step in after a few months in AAA, with Freddy or another inexpensive vet 5th starter as the other option.
