PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - Calling the New York Mets a ''marquee franchise,'' new players' union head Tony Clark is paying attention to the team's payroll.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said he expects the team's payroll to be between $85 million and $88 million this season, which would be a slight decrease from its $90.9 million final figure last year.
Despite the additions of free agents Curtis Granderson, Bartolo Colon and Chris Young, the Mets have a payroll resembling that of a mid-market franchise. The Los Angeles Dodgers' payroll is over $225 million and the New York Yankees will top $200 million.
