The most amazing stat....the numbers of players who make more than the entire Marlins roster, the fact that it's the lowest payroll in baseball in almost 20 years and that 53 of 59 Marlins players in the roster spent SOME time in 2005 in the minors.

And yet a Manager of the Year was fired.

White Sox were very high, but the Cubs stick out...of course, the A's and Twins are their usual, efficient selves.

You beat me to it.:smile:

I tend to avoid FOX news for most things but this is an interesting article. The Brewers looked lfairly efficient also, however I doubt that is much consolation to their fans since a few more wins would have put them in the playoffs. I'm sure JR is going to expect more for his money in 2007.
