Seems like Denver could support a higher payroll than that.
[Monfort] said the Rockies had revenue of about $162 million this year and the "rule of thumb" for player payroll is about 50 percent of revenue.
With the new national tv money rolling in, where do you suppose 90-95 million would rank among team payroll? I think the Rockies have tended to rank in the lower half of the Forbes revenue estimates, though closer to the middle than the bottom.

He disagreed with those who contend he doesn't have a passion to bring winning baseball to Colorado.
