Player             Salary         
Carl Pavano        $7 million
J.J. Hardy $5.1 million
Matt Guerrier $3.15 million
Delmon Young $2.6 million
Jesse Crain $2 million
Francisco Liriano $1.6 million
Brendan Harris *$1.45 million
Pat Neshek $625,000
Total $23,525,000

* = Brendan Harris agreed to a two-year, $3.20 million contract.

I can see why people would disagree with the Brendan Harris signing. I am fine with it on the contingency of the Twins adding another infielder, forcing Harris to the bench. And really, $1.45 million is fine for a bench player.

But I do agree with those who don't want to see Brendan Harris starting.
