Last year it was a little under 82MM. So, as expected, DM's comment that our 2014 payroll would be about the same as last year was a bunch of hogwash.
Yeah. I was surprised that Guthrie was the 2nd highest contract for the Royals. That made me cringe a little, but on the other hand, Guthrie has been a solid pitcher, so it's a wash.

It will be interesting to see how the Royals will handle the arbitration eligible players.
