No doubt the team will try to sign as many players as possible to deals that will keep them around for the "grand opening."

Great to lock up Swisher.

If Cisco is open by 2010 or 2011, who on this current team will still be here?

You'd think Swisher, Haren, Blanton, Gaudin, Street, Buck...don't know about anybody else?

Funny, back in 02 and 03...Swish was an afterthought as an legit big time prospect and look, 3 or 4 years later...he's basically the player the A's will build this lineup/franchise around.

Yea, looking at his numbers those 2 years, his turnaround happened when the A's demoted him from Double A Midland to Single A Modesto. Up to that point he hit 230-250. At Modesto he jumped to 296 to finish the season, then his power numbers flew in 2004 while at Sac.

Here's a breakdown of the salary figures:
500,000 signing bonus
2007 700,000
2008 3,500,000
2009 5,300,000
2010 6,750,000
2011 9,000,000
2012 10,250,000(1 million buyout)club option

2003 was the year in AA Midland.

He hit .230/5/43/.704 in 286 ABs.
