Brewers' Payroll For Upcoming Season Will Be Reduced For First Time Under Attanasio
Published January 22, 2013
IN THE CARDS: In St. Louis, Derrick Goold notes MLB Cardinals ownership "acknowledges keeping its core together will be costly" and in the coming years "expects the payroll to rise accordingly." Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III said, "I do think our payroll will go up in the next couple years. I do. To maintain the club that we have and do what we think we need to do there is a good chance." The Cardinals had a payroll "near $115 million last season and expect about the same for this season with the increase." DeWitt left open the "possibility that the increase in payroll might be necessary to address a need from outside the organization" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 1/22).
