The Associated Press obtained a copy of Jose Lopez's (Seattle Mariners) recently signed four-year, $6.07 million contract, which contains some interesting clauses. According to AP, Lopez can earn an extra $125,000 annually by passing four in-season tests: body-fat percentage, a 60-yard sprint, a 20-yard shuttle run and a vertical jump. Success in each test earns $25,000, and if all four are passed in the same season, another $25,000 is tacked on.

:D

Does David Wells have this clause in his contract? ;)

Thats actually a pretty good idea to make sure your investment stays in shape.

He does, but since he's a pitcher it involves the elbow a lot more....specifically, the bending of the elbow when he does the wrist-on-the-table to the chin test.
