Fun Fact

Here's a little tidbit that I found interesting, depressing, and annoying all at the same time. No, it's not about how they decided on who got to sing "April in the D".

The Detroit Tigers are paying $36.1 million to three guys that are not on the opening roster.

Gary Sheffield: $13.6 million (Thanks for taking $400,000 off for us, Mets!)
Jeremy Bonderman: $12.5 million (DL, shoulder)
Dontrelle Willis: $10 million (DL, crazy)

$36.1 million

The 2009 payroll for the entire Florida Marlins team? $36.8 million.
