Phillies are only playoff team left with payroll over $110 million

New York getting bounced from the playoffs last night means that of the 12 teams with payrolls above $100 million this season only the Phillies, Tigers, and Cardinals remain alive.

And if the Phillies lose to the Cardinals tonight that would mean none of the nine highest-payroll teams advanced past the first round.

Here are the payroll and payroll ranks of the six remaining teams, according to USA Today:

2. Phillies - $173 million
10. Tigers - $106 million
11. Cardinals - $105 million
13. Rangers - $92 million
17. Brewers - $85 million
25. Diamondbacks - $53 million

The Yankees ranked first at $203 million and the Rays were 29th at $41 million.
