Wait, is Hampton even playing anymore? I can't remember the last time I saw him play, and I watch the games on TBS fairly often. Getting $14.5 million for doing nothing has to be the most overpaid player. At least the other players show up.


Hampton is my pick as well

Has to be Jeff Bagwell, that guy is getting paid a ton.

Edit: Now I see the 19 million, I didn't think it was that much..wow. 8-o

But it would be better for their team if some of the players in this thread stayed home and did not play, because they are stinking up the joint. ;-)

At least Hampton is half decent.
Chan Ho sucks, period.

Wow i cant believe no one has mentioned Jeter yet. Second highest paid player in the game? Thats a joke. Yes hes pretty good at the plate, but he has sub-par defensive skills and his best years are behind him.

PS Dont bring up that 4 rings garbage. That was like six years ago.

I think Ryan Kelsko, Phil Nevin, Steve Finley, & Egardo Alfonzo need to be mentioned.
