Also, talked with Dayton Moore. Clarified the $55M-$60M quote. Said #Royals can sustain $75M-$80M payroll if winning and drawing well. --- He was speaking in generalities, but did mention 2.4M as "drawing well." They were at 1.6 last year, 1.8 in '09. Headed for 1.6-ish this yr.

Sam Mellinger on Twitter The Royals haven't drawn 2M since 1991, and only topped 2.4M in 1989. What comes first, 25K-30K a game, or 75M-80M in payroll?
