Building the Most Expensive Team of Under Performers in Baseball

Inspired by the 2008 Seattle Mariners season, in which they became the first team in history to lose 100 games with a $100 million payroll, I've decided to write an article in their honor.

I've set out on a mission to put together the most expensive team of under performers possible.

I'm basing this entirely on 2009 salaries, and will not include any players that have only been busts because of injuries. My goal is to easily surpass a $100 million payroll, without taking into account bench players or a full bullpen.

I hope you enjoy.
