A glance at the performance bonus portion of the contract

Given the prevalence of the Astros to hand out performance bonuses, it's time to see how those are shaping up...

First, congrats to Tejada, who earned an extra $50,000 for his selection to the All-Star team. I like Breitling watches, Miggs.

Pudge: Gets $200K each for 350, 375, 400, 425, 450 plate appearances; $150,000 each for 90 games, 100 games; $200,000 for 100 games played
Pudge has played in 71 games and has 260 PAs. So he has some money coming to him in the second half.

Blum: $50,000 each for 350, 375, 400, 425, 450, 475, 500 plate appearances
Blum currently has 226 plate appearances, so he should get an extra $100K at least.

Jason Michaels: $25,000 for 200 PAs; $50,000 for 225 PAs; $75,000 for 250 PAs; $125,000 each for 275, 300, 325, 375 PAs; $100,000 for 400 PAs
Michaels has 82 PAs, so it's looking likely that he'll stand pat with his $750K contract, unless somebody gets hurt.
