Randy Wolf- $6.625M
Brian Giles- $8.063M I'd say that's pretty expensive for how good he has been in San Diego
Kevin Millar- $3.5M
Mark Bellhorn- $2.75M, guy doesn't even deserve $1M

Brian Giles deserves NO consideration for this team. He's been pretty damn good in SD considering the park he plays in. I'd take him on my team for $8M, no doubt about it. ;-D

I don't think you should include players that have sucked mainly due to missed time. Bonds, for example, certainly should not be on the squad. Though he's on SF's payroll, insurance has got to be picking up a large chunk of that salary.

Anyway, surely there's enough sucky guys out there getting AB that we don't have to hamper a $200 mil. All-Suck team with a guy who's just going to sit on the DL. After all, he'd just be replaced in the lineup by a cheaper guy who, for all we know, might reach the heights of mediocrity and ruin the suckiness of it all!

I was thinking the same thing. :-/

Not only that, but he can suck for you at 3rd as well as 1st..

what is Juan Gonzalez making these days? I think he might have played (or DL'd) out his big contract, but i'd put him on the team even if he were making a dollar thirty seven.

The real scary part is that the first team I put together was only $6 Million and would most likely have been a heavy favorite to win the World Series heading into next season. It took a few higher dollar players to just to get up to Manny's salary.
