Some crazy contract clauses


Just in case you woke up earlier than I did, here’s some strange contract incentives, courtesy of Jorge Says No. I’m sure the Yankees had no problem fulfilling Alex’s and Teixeira’s requests for premium tickets.

    Alex Rodriguez (Yankees): Rodriguez may void after 2008 or 2009 unless club increases 2009-10 salary by $5M/year or $1M more than highest-paid MLB position player

    I’m guessing, what with the steroid thing and all, that A-Rod has decided to overlook that clause?

  2. What possible use for a bulldozer could Roy Oswalt have?

  3. Miraluka says:

    Most of those aren’t very funny. The Japanese division ones seem perfectly reasonable. Translators/Interpreters, and round trip flights to/from Japan all make sense.

    Allowing players to purchase high-end tickets makes sense, too. If not expected.

  4. What would you guys request?

  5. Doug says:

    All the Japanese players asked for “massage therapists” heh heh heh
