*The salary figures for Brad Penny, Esteban Loaiza, and Gary Bennett are all buyouts of 2009 options (Loaiza was released in 2008)

This puts the team payroll at roughly $77.5 million as of January 4, 2009.  If Manny Ramirez is brought back, plus the addition of one veteran starting pitcher, the payroll should settle into the $105-110 million range for both 2009 and 2010.
