MLS Salaries - Need Information

Beside the Washington Post publishing the salary numbers released by the players union, does anyone have a list of MLS salaries? I'm looking for updated numbers that would show what new players like Wanchope, Pavon, Sanneh, Osorno and others are making. The same with Bobby Boswell's new salary. He's not making $30k any more.

From what I can tell the MLS site is up to date. I know that the Galaxy data reflects our lottery boy, Israel Sesay, and he's only been on the roster a week. It also reflects players who are new to the league in the past few months like Pavon and Xavier, and shows the raise Ty Harden got this year after being made a regular starter.

I would guess that it's equally up-to-date for all teams, but I'm not sure.

I believe I read that Boswell's salary is so low because he wanted to keep his options open for an opportunity like Europe if it presented itself, so he didn't want to sign a long-term contract. I can't remember where I read that, so don't quote me.

Actually, Bobby is still making $30K.

Thank you Laurie. That is exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for.
