It's often talked about here in KC during baseball season... Money, Payroll, Small Market, Large Market, the Yankees!! Isn't it amazing that one Álex Rodriguez makes almost as much as the entire roster of Royals? Isn't it more amazing that we are currently sporting a similar record (10-5 vs 9-5)?
Because of this, I thought it would be interesting to see who's "Payroll" was the highest in our fantasy league and if it had any correlation to the standings.
The results of my search were slightly surprising.
*A few disclaimers:
- I didn't include players that were placed in the DL slots
- I also used this website: http://www.sportscity.com/MLB-Salaries/ so if they are wrong, so am I
