October 16, 2013; Los Angeles, CA, USA; Los Angeles Dodgers owner Magic Johnson reacts after first baseman Adrian Gonzalez (23) hits a solo home run in the ninth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals in game five of the National League Championship Series baseball game at Dodger Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY SportsSince 1999, the Yankees have exercised their will over the rest of the league, having the highest payroll in baseball every single season.

That all changes this year, with the Los Angeles Dodgers taking over the top spot at $235 million, easily dwarfing the Yankees' paltry $204 million.

The Dodgers will now have even higher expectations than they did last year, when they won the NL West with a second half push but fizzled out in the playoffs.

The Yankees are second, followed by the usual suspects, the Phillies, Red Sox and Tigers.
