Whew, so if we're winning we won't cut payroll.
Does this even have to be clarified? You would think conference calls to discuss the payroll would announce things like "Hey, if we're in it this year, we will be buyers at the trading deadline". Not, "If we're contending for the playoffs, we won't cut payroll". Although there is a precedent for giving up while contending for a playoff spot late in the season.
