Going on the cheap, bullpen style

I guess I find it funny. Some have been deriding the Yanks' bullpen because it consists largely of youngsters, but aren't those the same youngsters that others say the Yanks don't have enough of (yeah, they need young position players, I get it...)? That Joba should be a set up guy because the team lacks a proven one....

So courtesy of Pete Abe ("LoHud of the Rings"), here are the salary figures (bonuses included) for the middle relief corps:

  • Damaso Marte: $3.75 million
  • Brian Bruney: $1.25 million
  • Jose Veras: $432,975
  • Edwar Ramirez: $422,500
  • Phil Coke: $403,300
  • Jonathan Albaladejo: $403,075
  • TOTAL: $6,661,850
