Meanwhile, from ESPN's helpful team salary page comes news -- to me, at least: maybe everyone else already knew this -- that the New York Yankees, with a $207 million payroll, have not one but two individual players who are each making significantly more money than the entire Florida Marlins. And one of them is Jason Giambi.
Currently, the Yankees are 12-12, fourth place in their division. The Marlins? 14-9, first place.
