As Meatloaf once said, "two out of three ain't bad."
And, in other news, I was listening to the radio today and they were talking MLB Payroll
. I hadn't heard yet that thanks to all the off-season trades, the Florida Marlins Payroll is less than $15 million.
That means that at least 12 players in MLB this year will make more than the whole 25-member Marlins team combined.
1. Alex Rodriguez - $25,680,727
2. Derek Jeter - $20,600,000
3. Jason Giambi - $20,428,571
4. Barry Bonds - $20,000,000
5. Jeff Bagwell - $19,369,019
6. Mike Mussina - $19,000,000
7. Manny Ramirez - $18,279,238
8. Todd Helton - $16,600,000
9. Andy Pettitte - $16,428,416
10. Magglio Ordonez - $16,200,000
11. Randy Johnson - $15,661,427
12. Chan Ho Park - $15,333,679
In fact, the top trio of Yankees on the list together make more than 13 teams. Add in Mussina and you have more money in those four guys than in 17 others have in their entire team.
