Giant's Roster - Service Time and Salaries

Most of this information is from http://mlbcontracts.blogspot.com/
I did notice a few mistakes so I'm not convinced this is 100% accurate.  If anyone knows that something listed here is inaccurate please let me know and I'll update it.  I have all of this information and more in an Excel document so if anyone wants that just let me know and I'll email it to you.

All Service Time listed is Service Time entering the 2005 season.  I include signing bonuses in the year that the payment is actually made.  I included incentives when I thought they would be reached, specifically for Feliz and for Eyre (small amount).  Non-arbitration players make at least the major-league minimum of $316K when on the major league roster.  Some make a little more but none are above $350K.  Players on the 40-Man roster make $50K unless they've had a day of major league service time or it is there second year on the 40-Man, in which case they make $52,600.  There are a few details that I still don't know, I know part of Alou's contract is deferred but not how much and when, but I think overall the information is accurate and/or not off by any consequential dollar amount.
