20. Danny Tartabull
Contract: $27 million/Five years
Team: New York Yankees
Danny Tartabull capitalized on his contract year in 1991 by having the sole All-Star season of his 14-year career. In the offseason the Yankees came calling and made him one of the highest paid players in the MLB. Tartabull would never produce in New York like he had with the Kansas City Royals and was often the subject of public ridicule via George Steinbrenner. It's safe to say the highlights of dude's time in New York were those two cameo appearances he made on Seinfeld.
