Yesterday the Brewers announced they've signed John Axford to a one-year, $5 million contract to avoid arbitration. It's a significant boost from the slightly more than $500,000 he made last season, but it's only tied for the 27th largest single-season salary in franchise history.
26 Brewers (including those who played partial seasons as a Brewer) have posted an annual salary above $5 million. How many of them can you name in ten minutes?
