Hardball Dollars

Like it or not, financial flexibility has a lot to do with whether your favorite baseball team will be an active player in the post-season free agency period. There is a new website which tracks baseball payrolls for every team. Hardball Dollars shows payroll obligations for future years and calculates whether a team is going to be subject to the luxury tax. The New York Yankees have about 140 million dollars obligated next year to fill just 11 roster spots. Since that is 60+ million less than this years payroll I would expect them to be aggressive in the free agent market.
