What is an acceptable payroll in your view. I'm not ineterested in "whatever it takes" kind of answers. This team has had the highest or closest to highest payroll in baseball probably back to '73 or '74. I assume everyone here has what they think would be a reasonable level. What's yours?

About 40,000,000 over the cap.  The Yankees can afford it ... they're not poor.

Sounds about right.  And I know the argument of the luxury tax, but the Yankees are the richest sports franchise in the world.

New, I accidentally answered in the wrong thread. Long answer with reasoning is there, but the short answer is I spend up to the first threshold but not exceed it.

as a business person that's about what I would do. Why subsidize other teams to bid against me.

The price for the players should be around $250 million ... the luxury tax is something the richest team in all of sports can absorb.

A other quick point I didnt make in my first reply, I would take some of the money not spent on salaries and invest more in player development. I'd hold people in the organization more accountable for drafting and developing young talent. I raid personnel from organizations who are good at this rather than subsidizing their organizations with LT payments.
