Phillies Set Franchise Payroll Record

According to MLB.com's Todd Zolecki, the Phillies are looking at an Opening Day 25-man roster payroll of $132.5MM, a franchise record.

The Phils can expect an increase in merchandise and ticket sales after their 2008 World Series win, but the club might not have much of a budget for in-season acquisitions.  Ryan Howard will command the highest salary from the Phillies in '09 at $15MM.  Brett Myers is second at $12MM.
