Major league millionaires

This is a fascinating chart of the 409 major league players earning $1 million or more.

The most interesting thing about it is that the Reds don't have a player appear until slot 62, which is unfortunately Eric Milton who makes $9,833,333.

Ken Griffey Jr. is the 71st highest paid player in baseball, which is kind of amazing.

Adam Dunn is the third highest Reds player. That hadn't really sunk in for me until seeing this. He's 103rd with his $7,500,000.

Four of the six highest paid players in baseball are New York Yankees.

Jeff Bagwell is going to be making $19,369,019 this season to not play baseball.

Lots of interesting stuff in this thing, worth taking a look at.
