Next year will most likely be around $15 million, so there is some payroll. The salary for this year is one of the plusses of the deal of course.
This team will have some issues in a couple of years. We might have to pay Nola $20-25 million. Segura and a replacement catcher might cost $30-$40 million combined where Crawford and Alafaro would work for much less.
The flexibility on the money side is diminished. We'll be close to the luxury pool limit if we add a $30 million AAV free agent. We should be around $49 million under now. Next year it might be harder to stay under.
