Albert Belle - Signed by Baltimore in 1998, five years, $65 million.

Belle was one of the most feared hitters in baseball in the ‘90s, by pitchers and teammates alike. He averaged 40 HR and 126 RBI from 1992-98 for the Indians and White Sox, exhibiting an explosive temper that he turned on fans, press, and allegedly his girlfriend as well. He topped 100 RBI in his first two seasons with the Orioles, but a badly degenerating arthritic hip forced him to the sidelines at the end of the 2000 season, and he never played again.
