Rangers 2010 Payroll

Using Cot's Baseball Contracts as a reference, I extracted these contracts for a possible 25-man roster for next year. Our needs going into this off-season remain a LOOGY, a backup IF specialist, and a middle of the order bat that can DH.  If the Ranger's FO says our payroll will match last season's 68M, then we have roughly 11M to spend this winter.  (Cot's has what I believe to be higher contracts than reality for MY and Millwood, but these are the numbers I have, so I'm rolling with it)  (This assumes a 8M increase through arbitration etc)
