NEW MLB NUMBERS FOCUS ON 25-MAN ROSTER, O'S STILL TOP LEAGUE

          Opening-day MLB club payrolls, based on this season's
     salaries and pro-rated shares of signing bonuses for players
     on the 25-man rosters and the DL, are listed by Murray Chass
     of the N.Y. TIMES.  These numbers differ from figures cited
     in the 3/27 issue of THE DAILY from the Players Relations
     Committee, which includes the salaries of all players on the
     40-man roster, bonuses and benefits.   The following numbers
     include information on a team's 25-man roster (N.Y. TIMES,
     4/2).  USA TODAY also lists each team's payroll and complete
     individual player salaries (USA TODAY, 4/2):
