I spent 55.77 last year on pro + minor league salaries. And finished with -3 million in the bank. Thats despite trading for 3.25 million in cash as well.

Any team that has less than 23 million in the bank is at risk of bankruptcy in a single season unless they have a payroll less than 40 million and/or they achieve a whole schwack of endorsement dollars.
