During the last Stove League, the LA Dodgers opened their wallets so wide that they wondered, ‘Can they use it like that?’

However, this year, the Dodgers were not ranked first in Major League Baseball (MLB) payroll.

This is because the New York Mets had their wallets wide open.

According to Cot's Baseball, which specializes in MLB salary contracts on the 1st, the Mets spend $340.59 million (about 457.9 billion won) on the 40-man roster this year.

This is $15.19 million (about 9.6 billion won) more than the Dodgers' $325.4 million (about 467.5 billion won).

Last winter, the Dodgers signed Shohei Ohtani (30) to a 10-year contract worth a total of $700 million.

However, because he chose to pay in installments, he only has $2 million in payroll this year. If it had been a normal(?) contract, the Dodgers would have been first, but it can be said that the Mets became first because of this contract. Oh, the luxury tax base is $237 million this year. So, the Mets, Dodgers, New York Yankees, Atlanta, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Toronto, and even Texas must pay luxury tax. 고스톱
