Detailed Payroll Analysis 

I finally got a chance to take a closer look at some of the detailed payroll analyses that were sent my way...here's a rundown of the great information that I've added to the site:
  • John VonBokel pointed me towards this absolutely fantastic payroll thread on birdsonthebat.com. The majority of the detailed information on the thread came from a poster named John Bristor - many thanks to John for his wonderful research. Thanks to his work, I've been able to update the Cardinals payroll with more accurate information on a number of contracts, most notably Jim Edmonds, Scott Rolen, and Woody Williams.
  • Eitan Altman sent along his extremly detailed analysis of the Padres payroll - he pointed out a few inaccuracies that I had, and sent me the specifics of a few other deals - all of the information has been updated on their payroll page. Thanks for the great work, Eitan!
  • Ron Doub passed along a link to Orioles Hangout, where I was able to find some additional information on Orioles contracts - most notably the details of Javy Lopez's deal.
