Barring any other moves, for the Sox to field a full 25-man team, their payroll will probably come in around $71 million to open the season, which is about $40 million less than their Opening Day payroll to start the '12 season so yeah, I got a feeling they could have found a way to pay a guy about 60% of the cash they still haven't used from last season.

I'm pretty sure Peavy and Rios combined were making more than Cano
