The Orioles' decision to hire Buck Showalter has paid off so far; the team is 2-0 under its new manager. And according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney, the Orioles are paying Showalter handsomely (Twitter link). The longtime manager will earn $1.5MM per season through 2013, when his deal expires.
Manager salaries are often undisclosed, but Showalter appears to earn more than most of his counterparts. He's not the highest-paid manager, however. Joe Torre is about to complete a three-year $13MM deal.
