Relief pitcher Huston Street has a value of minus-$23.8 million this year, putting him as the 7th most overpaid, according to the publication. He has a $7 million salary, has a record of 0-4 with 15 saves and a 4.61 earned run average. Starting pitcher Clayton Richard has a value of minus-$18 million, 9th on the list, says the publication. Richard is paid $5.2 million, and is 2-5 with a 7.01 earned run average.

Congratulations to the Padres--I don't know how they did it, but 2 of the top 25? Well done.

aardvark: It is all the more remarkable when you realize that the Padres have one of Major League Baseball's lower payrolls. Best, Don Bauder

What are you going to do? Salary does not influence performance. Everyone is human. The whole thing is stupid.

chendri887: The Los Angeles Dodgers are a prime example of a high payroll not bringing a favorable outcome. Over time, the Padres have done well fielding at least a decent team with a low payroll. This year, these two players would seem to be an exception, Best, Don Bauder

over paid entertainers IMHO

Murphyjunk: When players are overpaid in a situation in which the facility was government-subsidized -- thus freeing management to shell out more bucks to players -- taxpayers should object. And just about every new stadium and ballpark IS subsidized by taxpayers. Ditto for rehabilitation of older parks. Taxpayers pick up much of the tab. This corporate welfare not only lines owners' pockets, it lines players' pockets. Best, Don Bauder
