Yikes, are they really??
When I first read it, I thought it was an 11 mil contract, but 11 mil a season
When exactly was this contract signed
Maybe right after Dye started the season on fire, like this season
Uhhhh guys why the hell do you think the A's have no money to sign FA in the offseason or resign Tejada???
After the a's traded for Jermaine in 2001 and he carried them to the playoffs. The A's gave him a 3 year 33 million dollar deal.
so in 2002: Dye made 11milliion (he hit like 250)
so in 2003: Dye made 11 million (he hit 170)
in 2004: Dyem makin 11 million (he is earning it right now)
By the way here is something you will all fine intresting
A's players made
Jermaine Dye: 11 million
Barry Zito: 1 Million
Eric Chavez: 3 million
Tim hudson & Mulder somewhere around Chavez
Its hard to belive that the A's won the AL west w/ nothing but crap production from above and beyond their highest paid player.
