Butler and A's finalize $30 million, 3-year deal

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Billy Butler came so close to winning it all with Kansas City that it stings to be leaving his only professional team after such a special run, and with some unfinished business.

Then the Oakland Athletics came calling when his old club did not, and Butler is someone who prides himself in loyalty - in this case to A's general manager Billy Beane's persistence and interest in striking a quick deal.

The versatile Butler finalized a $30 million, three-year contract with the A's on Wednesday. He receives a $5 million signing bonus payable by Dec. 31, a $5 million salary next year and $10 million in each of the final two seasons.
