HOW, did the Brewers manage 14 players (11 from the 40 man roster) in the WBC? I thought 8 was the max from a teams 40 man? and BOTH Starting Catchers?

I actually dont mind it? as Brauns been saying... spring games by the 2nd week get boring... the WBC is spread out so youre not over worked, and youre playing meaningful games instead of spring games. But they might run out of bodies in a split squad spring game with that many people leaving lol

I'm surprised they didn't at least get something of value for him. Aviles at least had some value, and all the Jays had to give up was an average-at-best manager.

We had to give up Aviles for Farrell because Farrell was making a lateral move. Theo was getting a promotion and precedent said you just let the guy go at that point. We were lucky to get anything.

The whole idea of trading players for execs or coaches is stupid anyways.

what about players getting traded for a bag of balls?

Reno Silver Sox to pull off this deal, but back in 1989 they traded Tom Fortugno to the Milwaukee Brewers organization for a bag of baseballs and $2,500.

or bats?

In May 2008, minor league pitcher John Odom was traded from the Calgary Vipers to the Laredo Broncos for a bag of Prairie Sticks maple bats.

or fish???

In one of the fishiest deals in baseball history, the Pacific Suns shipped Ken Krahenbuhl to the Greensville Bluesmen for 10 pounds of catfish, a player to be named later, and cash.

or himself :shock:

In July 2005, McDonald was sent to the Detroit Tigers for future considerations, after which the Tigers turned around and traded him back to the Jays at the end of the season.

Good point, I forgot Theo was going into a new role.

The Red Sox may have been able to get a serviceable player such as Aviles if they hadnt let Theo walk before consummating the deal. I guess they really had no choice though, it's not like they could have kept him on as GM until February.

I found this pretty entertaining, even if it's from last year.
