Top International Bonuses, through 2009

Miguel Cabrera - Leon Halip

A reader sent me this list of the Top International Bonuses through 2009. I am not sure the list is fully complete, but it looks close and I think it includes all the seven-figure guys. It takes a good five or six years to know if a guy was even potentially worth his bonus or not. Basically we have Miguel Cabrera, a few guys like Sano and Profar and Sanchez that we aren't sure about yet, and, well. . .

Otherwise, I present this without comment.
