Four Philadelphia Phillies will make more money in 2013 than the entire Houston Astros team. So will three New York Yankees, three Los Angeles Dodgers, three Detroit Tigers and three San Francisco Giants. All total, 20 deep-pocketed players are set to earn more than the payroll-shredding, rebuilding Astros. After Monday's trade that sent Jed Lowrie to Oakland, Houston's 2013 obligations are less than $25 million. That number is the lowest since the 2006 Florida Marlins had a payroll just below $15 million.
