With the Detroit Tigers recently signing Prince Fielder to a nine-year, $214 million deal, we thought it would be interesting to see who the top paid players are for the 2012 season. Unfortunately for the Yankees, they have three players on this list. The Tigers now have two. Although the Angels have one player in the Top 10 for 2012, it's not Albert Pujols. In fact, Pujols will not be seen on this list for a few years because his contract is backloaded.
