A payroll observation about Milwaukee vs Arizona
The Brewers and Diamondbacks played a thrilling 5 game Division Series.
The Milwaukee Payroll was $86 million.
The Arizona Payroll was $53.8 million.
The Brewers payroll was lower than what the Yankees paid for A-Rod, Sabathia, Teixeira and A. J. Burnett in 2011.
The Diamondbacks payroll was lower than what the Red Sox paid for Lackey, Crawford, Drew and Dice K for 2011.
Keep that in mind when discussing payroll in baseball.
