With all of this talk about the Yanks’ budget, the latest from Maury Brown should pique fans’ interests. The Biz of Baseball writer is projecting 2010 salaries based on available information. He covered the Yankees yesterday and determined that the team has committed $198 million to 18 players. The Yanks will renew their pre-arb players soon enough and will see the budget climb to over $200 million. If the team wants to be able to fill holes during the season and adhere to their budget, that should be it for the team’s Hot Stove spending.
