Breakdown after the jump.

So obviously there are some names that stick out.  The low end guys are rookies and the high end guys are the vets. Unfortunately, as fans, when pay is announced we often figure current year productivity to base who is over and under paid.  So that being said, that's exactly what I'm going to do. Also, please note I am not saying these players are over paid for soccer as a whole, but for the league and the impact they have on the team.  I understand that European/Brazilian/Mexican leagues can potentially pay more and that only two MLS teams are making currently making a profit.

Based on this list and current productivity, the most underpaid players on the team are Sinisa Ubiparipovic and Tim Ream.  Both have been phenominal as young players and have stepped up in a big way.  T hese two guys are why I am very optimistic about the future.  They've stepped up in a big way and should be making more money.  They are very fortunate the team has perks like inexpensive housing and catering during practices which covers both breakfast and lunch, which allows for the $40,000 to be a livable salary.  

For overpaid? That's more subjective but two names three names that stick out are Carl Robinson, Salou Ibrahim, and Macoumba Kandji. Kandji is injury prone, but provides size at the front that the team is missing right now.  My only issue with his salary is that he gets injuried way too often to be productive.  The team is only responsible for a third of Carl Robinson's salary so I'll give him a pass on being extremely overpaid.  That leaves Salou Ibrahim, who makes a ton of errors and doesn't convert with balls in net. I don't care about footwork, I care about numbers, and his numbers don't reflect his salary.
