Mussina to Steinbrenner: Oswalt Got a Bulldozer, Where’s My Harley?
Tuesday, December 20, 2005

To anyone that didn’t quite understand what “incentives” meant in a player’s contract, the answer, apparently, includes heavy duty construction equipment.

Roy Oswalt received a very interesting bonus for his MVP-worthy work in the ALCS this year: a bulldozer. Before starting game six, Astros owner Drayton McLane told Oswalt that if he earned a “W” in the game he would reward him by buying him anything he wanted. Just as the rest of us normal people would, Oswalt logically chose a BULLDOZER. He reported that it was his “childhood dream” to own one (again, just like the rest of us).

In order to award Oswalt the bulldozer, the Astros had to modify his contract to include a “bulldozer addendum”. I’m sure that it was the first ever (and likely last, unless Oswalt runs this one into the barn) of its kind.

The Astros organization also donated forty-four toy bulldozers – in honor of Oswalt’s jersey number – to the Star of Hope Mission. Thanks to the Astros and Oswalt's "dream", there will no doubt be forty-four little boys smashing bulldozers into their older sisters’ feet come Christmas morning!
