Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

IIATM: Explaining the luxury tax, revenue sharing refunds, and the Yankees

Unfortunately for the Yankees, the $189,000,000 goal will be difficult for the team to get under without some very shrewd maneuvering and getting a bingo on a minor league prospect or three.  The 2014 Yankee club, as viewed through a luxury tax lens, looks like the following:

Team must be at or under $189,000,000 for entire season costs

Alex Rodriguez -$27,500,000 (Average Annual Value of contract)

Mark Teixeira -$22,500,000 (Average Annual Value of Contract)

CC Sabathia -$23,875,000 (Average Annual Value of Contract [Original + Extension])

Player Benefits -$10,799,590 (Or more!)

Remaining budget room: $104,325,410

These are known costs, but there is 1 more cost that will definitely factor in to 2014.  It is variable.  If Derek Jeter accepts his player option for 2014 he will cost $15,500,000 (14 AAV+1.5 silver slugger bonus).  If Derek Jeter declines his option, he will count as $9,000,000 for 2014, due to the rules of the CBA.  Derek Jeter’s $8 million player option for 2014 counts as a guaranteed year and is included in the AAV calculation, which lowered the AAV of Jeter’s deal from $16mm to $14mm.  The Yankees will owe $2mm each in back pay for 2011, 2012, and 2013.  They will also owe $3mm for his buyout.

Without doing anything significant via trade, the Yankees 2014 operating budget will be either $88,825,410 or $95,325,410 depending on what Jeter does.  This does not include anyone in arbitration or minor leaguers on the 40 man roster.

Can the Yankees fit ~21 players under that salary amount while still competing for the playoffs?

Well worth a read if you want to understand just how big of a task the Yankees face if they want to get under the payroll limit in 2014 while remaining competitive.
