Red Sox Had Highest Payroll

NEW YORK (AP) NEW YORK (AP) -- The World Series champion Boston Red Sox had the highest payroll in Major League Baseball last season at $230 million.

Overall, the league's payrolls dropped for the first time since 2010, a decline attributable to drug and domestic violence suspensions and a player retiring at midseason.
