And one of my favorites of the season, though I’m not sure what it tells us, other than that Orioles GM Dan Duquette is collecting veterans who once made a whole lot of money.
Anyway, here it is:
The career earnings for the players at the Orioles’ Triple A Norfolk exceed those of the players on the O’s major-league club – and it’s not even close.
Seven players at Norfolk – third baseman Miguel Tejada, left-hander Jamie Moyer, right-hander Joel Pineiro, infielder Bill Hall, outfielders Nate McLouth and Lew Ford and left-handed relievers J.C. Romero and Dontrelle Willis – have combined to earn $332.3 million, according to baseball-reference.com.
The combined earnings of the Orioles’ major leaguers is less than $180 million. Second baseman Brian Roberts, the leader at $42.3 million, has earned less in his career than Tejada, Moyer and Romero, and isn’t far ahead of Willis.
