Once Again, Texas Leads the Way : Minor leaguer traded for 10 baseball bats in Texas: "McALLEN, Texas --
During three years in the low minors, John Odom never really made a name for himself until he got traded for a bunch of bats.

'I don't really care,' he said Friday. 'It'll make a better story if I make it to the big leagues.'

For now, Odom is headed to the Laredo Broncos of the United League. They got him Tuesday from the Calgary Vipers of the Golden Baseball League for a most unlikely price: 10 Prairie Sticks Maple Bats, double-dipped black, 34-inch, C243 style."

I saw that news story. I'm thinking that if the team owner had been a woman, she'd have gotten at least double the amount of bats for a player that cute. I certainly would have negociated a better trade. Harrumph.

Bill, thanks for your comment on my last blog post and for your support.

PS, I can't spell bit words like nego . . . whatever, but I know how to trade baseball bats. Sigh.

Maybe you'd have gotten her to throw in a '57 Chevy.
