Three Angels make All-Overpaid Team
Some players hurt their teams statistically. Some hurt them financially. And some do both, writes Rob Neyer.

It's a double whammy: High-paid players with lousy stats waste both money (that could be spent elsewhere) and playing time (that could be given to better, probably cheaper players). So here, then, as we enter the last month of the season, are the players who have hurt their teams the most:
