with the game. Almost $1 mil for a back-up catcher.


Oakland backup catcher Greg Myers, who filed last week, agreed to a $900,000, one-year contract. Myers, who hit .184 with seven homers and 13 RBIs last season, gets $800,000 next season. Oakland has a $1.1 million option for 2002 with a $100,000 buyout.

It's not so much that Myers is getting paid $900,000 it's the fact that this no talent bum is still in the league at all.

Remember when Ryne Sandberg was ruining the league by signing his massive contract? Remember when players who made a million dollars were considered good players? Greg Myers couldn't make my little brothers Little League team.
