Yup, more than any of their position players in 2010 (except Beltran, but I didn't include him because he hasn't been a meaningful part of the team), including the likes of Bay, Wright, and Reyes
On a side note, does anyone else see that Gary Matthews Jr. is making $11,400,000??? Can that be right? If so, that's almost as big a joke as Perez making $12 Million! I know they didn't offer him that $ (I'm guessing the Angels did?), but why would they pick up an OF with that much baggage to sit on the bench (he's not even a starter and he makes more than Bay), when they already don't have Beltran playing. That's $30 million worth of OF that isn't on the field!!! What a disgrace.
Bay also got a sizeable signing bonus (something to the effect of 8 mil) so far all intent and purpose, he's making more than Ollie.
And no, that's not right. The Mets are paying Matthews 1 million for each of the next two years if I remember correctly. The Angels ate the rest of the contract.
