I'm really curious as to how Montreal would trade Duvall to Montreal. What would they be willing to give up and get for him?On the other hand, she also predicted Montreal would trade Chris Duvall to Montreal during the draft and called someone a dickhead after being called out for unsourced rumors.
There was a trade in MLB folklore where Team A traded a player to be named to Team B or something and Player 1 went back to the same team in the end. There may have been a bag of peanuts involved too, or a goat.I'm really curious as to how Montreal would trade Duvall to Montreal. What would they be willing to give up and get for him?
It happened 4 times. No surprise that the first one involved the 1962 Mets:There was a trade in MLB folklore where Team A traded a player to be named to Team B or something and Player 1 went back to the same team in the end. There may have been a bag of peanuts involved too, or a goat.
Sounds like a Chiti cup of coffee to me.It happened 4 times. No surprise that the first one involved the 1962 Mets:
On April 25, 1962—before he even played a game for the Indians—Chiti was acquired by the expansion New York Mets for a player to be named later. However, he was sent back to the Indians on June 15, 1962 after 15 games and a .195 batting average. Since Chiti was the "player to be named later", he thus became the first player ever traded for himself. Three other players in history have been traded for themselves: Dickie Noles, Brad Gulden, and John McDonald. Chiti never played another major league game, spending two more years at Triple-A before retiring in 1964.
man playing in that heat is gonna suck.On a separate note, I've heard on Sunday from fellow fans who were talking to players that preseason will take place, at least in part, in Abu Dhabi. Not just 5 players going for a PR, Marketing campaign but full team preseason in the Emirates.
Quoting your previous post below.Whether we trade a team GAM or send them a check that becomes GAM, what’s the difference?
When you say "or can we only use AMs", I'm assuming the first part of your post is asking if we can purchase players without using an "AM's". AM's in this instance would include TAM, GAM, and the rumored YAM. So, would we be able to purchase a player without using "G"AM? (I would also assume in this instance, we are ruling out "sending them a check that becomes GAM").Can we buy a player from within the league or can we only use AMs?
I'm assuming that since you were excluding GAM, that maybe there is a way to purchase a player within the league without using GAM, but I don't think any team would sell that way, because there is little incentive.I'm sure it's possible, I guess. But why would any team sell a player to another within the league and receive money they can't use to better their roster?
