The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to spend as much money as possible to put together a winning team; that much is clear. But with great payroll comes great responsibility to not go crazy with contracts.
I can't say the Dodgers have abided by that made-up rule quite yet, because they certainly have their fair share of well-overpaid players. You can point to about half of the starting lineup as being "overpaid," but having an expensive contract doesn't necessarily make one overpaid.
Instead, I focused on guys who do not earn the money they are paid. For example, I truly believe that Matt Kemp, despite his mammoth salary, earns his paycheck by being a legitimate five-tool player. On the other hand, B.J. Upton's new $15 million-per-year contract with Atlanta doesn't seem very justified based on his performance.
Similarly, you won't see Hanley Ramirez or Adrian Gonzalez on this list. They may earn too much money, but they are multi-faceted, talented players who make one of the biggest impacts to any team in any league.
