Great breakdown of the 2011 Fodgers' payroll for the 2011 season. Their 25 man payroll should come in around $94.5M, while their deferred payments to ex-Fodgers adds up to $16.3M - that's over 17% of the cost of the entire 25 man payroll! Even worse, McCourt/Ned doubled down this off-season and went on another deferred salary bender. Approximately 25% of the money that they used to sign/re-sign Uribe, Guerrier, Lilly and Kuroda is deferred into later years.

And it could be scary when it comes.
