The Average All-Star Makes Less Than The Average Yankee

Robotto Clemente crunched some more All-Star salary numbers* for us and dug out more fun fascinating facts.

The one that really jumps out at me is that the average salary of a 2009 All-Star is $7,404,184, which is $410,917 less than what the average New York Yankee makes — $7,748,046.

We could also make a damn good All-Star team made up of just the lowest paid half of this year’s All-Stars.テつ For a grand total of $79,344,027 — or less than the total payroll of 17 MLB teams — here’s what you’d have:

P Chad Billingsley LAD $475,000
C Yadier Molina STL $3,312,500
1B Adrian Gonzalez SDP $3125,000
2B Ben Zobrist TB $415,900
SS Jason Bartlett TB $1,981,250
3B Evan Longoria TB $550,000
OF Justin Upton ARZ $412,000
OF Adam Jones BAL $435,000
OF Hunter Pence HOU $439,000
Reserve C: Brian McCann ATL $3,700,000, Victor Martinez CLE $5,900,000
Reserve IF: Dustin Pedroia BOS $1,825,000, Aaron Hill TOR $2,590,000, Ryan Zimmerman WAS $3,325,000, Orlando Hudson LAD $3,365,877, Hanley Ramirez FLA $5,500,000
Reserve OF: Josh Hamilton TEX $555,000, Ryan Braun MLW $1,032,500, Curtis Granderson DET
Starting Pitchers: Tim Lincecum SFG $650,000, Josh Johnson FLA $1,400,000, Edwin Jackson DET $2,200,000, Matt Cain SFG $2,900,000, Justin Verlander DET $3,675,000, Zack Greinke KC $3,750,000, Felix Hernandez SEA $3,800,000, Tim Wakefield BOS $4,000,000, Brad Hawpe COL $5,500,000
Relief Pitchers: Andrew Bailey OAK $400,000, Heath Bell $1,255,000, Jonathan Broxton $1,825,000, Ryan Franklin STL $2,500,000

Even More Fun With Numbers:

The Devil Rays get the most All-Star bang for their payroll.テつ The Yankees pay by far the most per All-Star of any team with multiple All-Stars.テつ The Cubs have the highest payroll of any team with only a single All-Star.テつ The Twins are the only team that doles out more than half its total payroll to All-Stars.テつ Twelve teams are stuck paying 90% or more of their payroll to non-All-Stars.
