Alex Rodriguez will make more money this year ($22 million) then the ENTIRE Devil Rays team ($19.6 million).

More on baseball economics:

By RONALD BLUM, AP Sports Writer
April 4, 2003

-- Anaheim followed its first World Series title by boosting its payroll to $79 million, keeping all its key players. The Angels began 2002 at $61.7 million.

-- Philadelphia, which moves into a new ballpark in 2004, made a big payroll jump (from $58 million to $70.8 million), as did division champions Minnesota and Oakland.
