The Astros only have a $25 Million Dollar Payroll this year – and that includes paying Wandy Rodriguez ($6.5 MIL) and Chris Snyder (500k). Their highest paid player is Closer Jose Veras at $3.25 MIL this year.  They are in the same division where Texas is around $120 MIL – while the Angels are well over $150 MIL.  For this team to eventually compete, they will need to draft well – and then sign Free Agent players when the team is competitive enough in the AL West.  The Astros made the move to the American League after 50 seasons in the National League.

You guys are all in for a treat.  Jeff Kleiner recently contacted me about a partnership merge for the website.  He has developed a site (prosportsrosters.com) that covers all organizational affiliates in the Minors for all of the Major League Baseball Clubs.  We are going to combine efforts to bring you the best look at salaries, current 25 Man Player Rosters and Depth Charts for all 30 teams. 

Jeff is going to provide the documents in form of spreadsheets and I am going to accompany the posts with deep analysis of what the numbers tell us from my perspective.  If you can’t wait for all of my assessments for each club, go and visit Jeff’s website over at http://www.prosportsrosters.com.
