Where do we sit on cap space?


Recommended Posts

We can't be over. You are not allowed to be "over" once the league year has begun. However, the cap currently is counted on the 'top 51'. According to statements Beane has made he thinks he might need to make some room to get a projected 53 under the cap, and then obviously give himself a little pot for signings in-season of any street FAs to cover injuries etc.

That's basic accounting work and can easily be done with a release or two and/or restructure.

Saw something yesterday (sorry can't remember where) saying we had 5.05 million in cap space as of now.

According to Overthecap.com we have $5,665,218.

 

I think that's only counting the Top 51 not all the players...that works up until after the preseason when they need to be under the cap for all players.
