Quirky Clauses in Baseball Player Contracts


The Mental Floss Blog has put together an amusing list of odd clauses inserted into the contracts of certain major league baseball players. The Uniform Player Contract (page 210 etc. of the Basic Agreement), of course, permits "special covenants" of this nature, but some of these seem quite weird.

Test your knowledge by matching the contract clause to the player in the list below:

Players:

Roy Oswalt

Charlie Kerfeld

A.J. Burnett

Rollie Fingers


Contract quirk (team to provide...):

Nine limo trips for player's wife from Maryland to Canada

$100 worth of mustache wax

37 boxes of orange jello

Caterpillar Bulldozer

You can view the full list here.

has anyone ever made the argument that incentive-laden clauses in baseball player contracts are illusory?

What if a pitcher logged 195 innings, and then was given a "break," when 200 innings would guarantee him another mill?

or plate appearance clauses for hitters?

If I remember correctly, every contract has an implied warranty of good faith and fair dealing. If the team intentionally sits the player so as not to pay the incentive and the player was ready, willing, and able to go to the plate or take the mound then this would be a breach of contract by the team and the player could bring suit to collect the damages which would be the incentive bonus.

I'm surprised litigation has never erupted out in a situation like this...

Lets say Johan Santana had a clause in his contract that would kick in with 35 starts, and he was due to start the final Sunday of the year. However, because the Twins made the post-season, they are going to skip his final start in preparation of game 1 of the ALDS.

All comments are welcome, especially Karcher because I know he is passionate about these things.
