Jerry,
Yours was the simplest solution.  Thanks very much!  FYI, I had to leave out 
"the" to make it work.
So my script is:
sort lines of field "myStuff" numeric by char 2 to -1 of word 4 of each

If you can really really count on the $ always being present, you could do:
sort the lines of field "myStuff" numeric by char 2 to -1 of word 4 of each
