The Fay: USA Today published baseball's payrolls. The Reds are at $74.1 million, 10th in the National League, fifth in the NL Central, 18th in the majors. Yankees check in at $209 million, Marlins at $21 million. Biggest surprise to me: Corey Patterson is making $3 million. He came in on a minor league deal, but must have gotten a big bump for making the club. Yikes.
