The above list is by no means complete or even 100% correct. A big hat tip to Cot's Baseball Contracts and MLB4U , whose sites I used to get most of the contract info found above.

Please feel free to advise any corrections and/or additions so I can keep this list as correct and up-to-date as possible. Also, I invite anyone and everyone to advise how many years are left in both the Arbitration Eligible and Under Club Control lists. My goal is to make this list the most detailed and up-to-date potential 2006 A's roster one can find.
