Court Documents Provide Glimpses Of Rangers Payroll

New, 1 comment

I'm not sure if this is a tiny silver lining in the Rangers sale drama or not, but documents filed today have provided some rare transparency in where the Rangers' money goes. Maury Brown gives some details here.

Here are some of the quotes I find the most interesting, but I'm not quite sure how to comment on yet. At the very least, we can probably put these "Nolan Ryan makes $9 million" rumors to rest.

Hicks is show to have made $183,594 in salary from 6/15/09 - 5/24/10 with expenses of $14,452. However, Hicks Holding, LLC saw $64,737.85 in reimbursements for travel expenses and TOH Investors, LP, an entity directly or indirectly owned and controlled by Hicks saw $1,966,644.65 under an "A/R Factoring Agreement".

From 5/29/09- 5/24/10 current president of the Rangers and prospective owner Nolan Ryan made $1,540,527 in salary with $85,750 in expenses. 

Jamison "Jamey" Newberg, who operates a popular website, The Newberg Report, was paid $27,125 by the team from February through April, according to the court document filed late Monday.

Newberg said the payments likely were for books he sold the club. And while he received no money for his blog, the Rangers did finance his family's trip to spring training in Surprise, Ariz.
