 "People talk about the payroll, 'Oh, gee, the payroll's over $200 million,'" Colletti said Sunday in an interview with at Camelback Ranch. "You know, we were at $90 million last year. You're the Dodgers and you play in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium, and you've got a chance to draw almost four million people a year. And you've got two great baseball cities in Boston and Philly, and their payrolls have been in the $170-$180 [million] range, with two smaller ballparks, too, two smaller areas. If that's where they're at and the Yankees are way up there, too, shouldn't we be somewhere between the Yankees and those two clubs with our payroll, $190-$200[million]?
