http://www.mlsplayers.org/files/3_2_09_salary_info_club.pdf Big base salary raises for Simms ($58K to $150K), Doe ($33K to $80K), Quaranta ($33K to $70K), Burch ($33K to $60K), McTavish ($33K to $50K). Namoff just went from $95K to $100K - no wonder he took a while to agree to terms. In looking at all of them, Simms and Doe's increases were the biggest surprises (not that they got raises - just the level of increases. It is a huge raise for Simms - in Doe's case, I am not sure that he deserves a bigger raise than Quaranta got). We now know why DCU's salary cap is a big more tight than expected - the list excludes Jakovic, N'Silu, Kocic, Peters, Platter, Barklage and Mediate (if he makes the team). 2009 MLS Player Salaries: March 2, 2009: By Club 2009 2009 Guaranteed Club Last Name First Name Pos Base Salary Compensation DC Burch Marc D, $ 60,000.00, $ 62,500.00 DC Carreiro Fred M, $ 225,000.00, $ 257,000.00 DC Crayton Louis GK, $ 171,000.00, $ 178,857.14 DC Doe Francis F, $ 80,000.00 $ 80,000.00 DC Emilio Luciano F, $ 720,000.00, $ 758,857.14 DC Gomez Christian M, $ 385,000.00, $ 430,000.00 DC Jacobson Andrew M, $ 34,000.00, $ 34,000.00 DC Janicki Greg D, $ 34,000.00, $ 34,000.00 DC Khumalo Thabiso F, $ 34,650.00, $ 34,650.00 DC McTavish Devon D, $ 50,000.00, $ 52,500.00 DC Miller Ryan M $ 20,100.00 $ 20,100.00 DC Moreno Jaime F, $ 250,000.00, $ 250,000.00 DC Namoff Bryan D, $ 100,000.00, $ 105,000.00 DC Olsen Ben M, $ 225,000.00, $ 225,000.00 DC Peralta Gonzalo D, $ 210,000.00, $ 229,000.00 DC Pontius Chris F $, 36,000.00, $ 66,000.00 DC Quaranta Santino M, $ 70,000.00, $ 72,500.00 DC Simms Clyde M, $ 150,000.00, $ 156,000.00 DC Wallace Rodney D, $ 55,000.00, $ 88,000.00 In terms of base salary for senior roster players (assuming Emilio is just the DP cap hit of $400K, Perlata's loan gets his salary off the books [not sure if/how it works that way] and Gomez is on DCU's books for just $200K - Barklage, Kocic, Wallace and Miller $ do not hit the cap), the total salary $ is $2.120M. You can probably add another $250K for the following salaries and the total is $2.370M Jakovic - $80K (hardest salary to peg - can't see it more than $100K) Platter - $50K N'Silu - $40K Peters - $34K Medciate - $34K (if he sticks) Cap was supposedly $2.3M in 2008 - gross it up for 3% cost of living and you get $2.370M so DCU would be at or very near the cap if my numbers are reasonably close, but it does not factor in any You Suck or any other allocation $ may have been used to buy down salary cap hits.
