Fear is the glue that holds society together. It's what makes people suppress their worst impulses. Fear is power.

And at the end of fear, oblivion.





Just from eyeballing, this is how I see the teams on a relative salary scale. Putting the bigger salaried players in parentheses ($10+/yr @ 2014), at least the ones I recognize.

High
Tampa Bay [~$125M] (McCann, Kendrick, Aybar, Hunter, Price, Cain)
Braves [~$167M] (Cabrera, Hamilton, Ellsbury, Kemp, Hudson, Garza, Santana, Papelbon)
Cleveland [$148.4M] (HanRam, Ar. Ramirez, A. Soriano, Granderson, Bruce, Greinke, R. Soriano)

Medium
Toronto [~$95M] (Swisher, Cano, Ethier, Weaver, Shields, Lohse)
Detroit [$87.5M] (A-Gon, Nolasco)
Colorado [$93.4M] (Pence, Gordon, LaRoche)
New York (NL) [$84M] (Prado, Davis, Braun)
Kansas City [$95.9M] (Upton, Upton, Bourn, Sabathia)
San Francisco [$80.5M] (Wainright)

Low
Baltimore [~$60M?](Wright, Dickey, Lester, Cabrera)
Boston [$75M] (Pujols)
New York (AL) [~$70M?] (Reyes, Beltre)
Chicago (AL) [~35M?] (Tanaka) <---- holy poo poo so many cheap cost controlled players, it's like 2013 Houston plus Tanaka
Oakland [$58M] (Scherzer, 30 feet of poo poo)

okay I'm bored somebody else can keep going.

According to fangraphs, DETROIT MEOW CITY clocks in at $87.5M for the 2014 season. This includes five players for whom no contracts were listed, so I threw MLB minimum $0.5M at them.

Assuming that I've calculated things right, and excluding rookies, the Braves salary is somewhere around 130-135M for this season.

EDIT: Apparently my numbers are pretty well off what some other people have gotten.

Huh. I think I've might've been lowballing some numbers there. Mine's at $93.4M, and I didn't think I had all that pricey a team (Pence, Gordon, and LaRoche are my only $10M+ players).

I guess 25 players just add up.

I did mine, and the Mets payroll is around $84 million (assuming I didn't gently caress up). With my highest paid player surprisingly being Martin Prado with $11 million.

Also, the Rays having one of the highest payrolls is pretty funny.

Twins come in at roughly $82.45 million. I rounded on some of the rookie deals where the guy was getting like $1,042 over the minimum.

e: I know Houston wants to be autoed so once Miami and Milwaukee pick I can finish the draft. Feel free to PM me your lineups/rotations and strategies so I can get started, though.

Are you running a 4-man rotation or something? Don't see your SP5.

Is it possible to have the game set strategy and then override specific sliders? I want to set lineups and pitching strategy, but I'm sure I'd gently caress up just about anything else I'd touch.

To be honest, I'm probably going to gently caress up pitching, but I have something specific I want to try.

I've tried to set some sliders in my tab. It's, uh, a little confusing. If it looks dumb, just use the lineups and depth charts I set and forego the slider poo poo.

There's a downside if you don't manage it properly. The downside being that they pitch like poo poo.

Your pitching doesn't exactly scream 4-man rotation stuff. None of them have ever average 6 or more IP per start. I think you're being a bit risky here.

Fair enough. On the other hand, coming up with sliders for that many situations is probably past what I'm willing to bother with this drunk. Just let the computer come up with everything, that gives me a convenient scapegoat when everything goes tits up.
