"We're going to non-tender some players that people don't want us to non-tender," Huntington said. "We're going to tender some players that probably surprise some people. But those are the business decisions that we have to make. Every year, arbitration is going to organically drive up payroll higher."
My sense is that this isn't just a stock line, but it's also worth pointing out here that when the bloggers spoke to Huntington last summer, he said virtually the same thing with regard to his valuation of prospects - that they might trade some players who would be surprising, and roster others who would be surprising.
