The 2005 New York Yankess Payroll - NumSum.com 'd

The New York Yankees are the highest paid team in all of professional sports. The Yankee players will be paid $216,030,370 in 2005 by the calculation of a NumSum.com spreadsheet. The Boston Red Sox with the second highest payroll paid its players $121,311,945 for the 2005 season according to ESPN.

Numsum.com is a "FREE bite-sized web spreadsheets for sharing." Here is a Numsum.com spreadsheet TJN made to look at the 2005 New York Yankees player salaries on a per game basis:

ESPN reported the New York Yankee player salaries totaled $205,938,439. The ESPN total and The Johnsville News total of $216,030,370 differ by $10,091,931. What does $10 million matter to the Yankees anyway?

Numsum.com is in beta - so it will certainly get better. Currently, Numsum.com is relatively clunky and difficult to use. Formatting is painful. You can't paste a number with commas or dollar signs into it. There is lots of room for improvement. Since this spreadsheet is public anyone can paste into their own web page. The height and width of the spreadsheet can be adjusted. Numerous formulas are supported, for example, if you want to compute the average age of the Yankees insert the following formula: =AVERAGE(F2:F29)

A NumSum spreedsheet provides an alternative way for a blog to insert data in a column format into a page. The downside of this format is that it is added as a browser frame. Click on one of the player links to see a better example of that.
