AL Central: As we inch closer to the MLB season, and move beyond Albertgeddon, payrolls will inevitably become a topic. It certainly is an issue in the AL Central. “The Twins, White Sox and Tigers will each open the 2011 season with payrolls over $100 million … the Indians and Royals have lost contact with the rest of the field … the Indians are expected to have a payroll of between $45 million and $50 million. The Royals could pay their players between $35-$40 million.” Cleveland’s Manny Acta is right – “Does [a high payroll] help? Yes. Does it guarantee it? No.” Not surprisingly, most MLB pundits are projecting the frugal Indians to finish 4th, and the Royals 5th. [Plain-Dealer]
