Here Are 12 MLB Players Who Will Earn More In 2013 Than Houston's Entire Roster

After winning last night's opener, the Astros have the best record in baseball. For now. Truth is, Houston is expected to be one of the league's very worst teams -- and is thus compensated as such.

The Astros' payroll for the 2013 season as of Sunday night, according to Baseball Prospectus, is $20,766,220. There are 12 players in Major League Baseball who will make more than that alone in 2013.

Here they are, in alphabetical order.
