The total of all these players salaries is about 144.321 million, the average player on this list makes 9.62 million and is about 29.5 years old. Are all of these players deserving? I will leave that for you to decide!
It should be noted that, for position, I used the position that the owner has listed, so it may be incorrect at times.
Also, No Players who have their primary position listed as C or DH made this list. The Highest Three paid Catchers for this season were 25 yr old Ralph Randal of the NY Comics, who makes 6.875 mil, 32 yr old D'Angelo Pescado who plays for Santa Cruz and makes 6.190 mil, and 32 yr old Josh Beltre who plays for Tamba Bay and will make 6 million this season
The highest three paid players listed at DH were 34 yr old Eddie Norton from San Jose who is making 7.760 mil, 28 yr old Nicholas Maduro from Detroit who is making 7 mil, and 32 yr old B.C. Villa from Oakland who is making 5.7 mil.
