Ordonez is at least 10 million
Konerko will be around 8
Burhrle 7 or 8
Frank is 10

In total, that's 35, which leaves 10 million for 20 players. That dog won't hunt. Bye bye Foulke (probably will happen), bye bye lee (hopefully won't - he's picking up walks and having a solid second half) - hell bye bye anyone above 1 million a year.

Of the 4 above, I'd have to release Frank first (if JR can do some creative accounting so that Frank's deferrals aren't included in the 45 million). The other three are the 3 core players on the team and are necessary for any semblance of respectability.

the boss might envoke franks dimishing skill clause to get down there.

That would be a PR disaster.

Buehrle will be nowhere near seven mil,and he has 3 years to go till he is eligible for FA.
