Luxury tax

Crane today appeared to express a willingness to go over it. Hooray! If Cole wants to stay and will compromise of the length of the deal, maybe we have a chance.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

I found this from Luhnow: We're probably over the line [the so-called Luxury Tax] at this point without any added additions. Fortunately, Jim's been really open to different investment ideas depending on how we justify it and how it helps our team. At the end of the day, we're not going to know our payroll until we start next year. There's going to be opportunities to improve the team.

That was in the same article quoting Crane on At Bat and elsewhere.
