(AP) -Just a year ago, Dick Allen was baseball's bad man. No team, it seemed, was willing lo put up with his idiosyncracies for very long. The Chicago While Sox took their turn with the temperamental slugger last season, acquiring him from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for pitcher Tommy John. Now the White Sox are not only willing to put up with Allen, they're paying him more money than any player in the history of the major leagues. Allen, who changed the While Sox from an also-ran into a solid pennant contender, signed a three-year contract Tuesday for $675,000. The previous lop salary in baseball was negotiated by Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves, who is in the second of a three-year contract for $600.000. Allen's remark on the contract was: "I can't count that high." The White Sox' first baseman wasn't the only slugger signed to a six-figure pact Tuesday. Frank Robinson of the California Angels, acquired from the Dodgers in an off-season deal, signed a two-year contract for a reported $300,000.
