McALLEN, Texas - During three years in the low minors, John Odom never really made a name for himself.

That sure changed this week - he's the guy the Calgary Vipers 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 Calgary of the Golden Baseball League for a most unlikely price: 10 Prairie Sticks Maple Bats, double-dipped black, 34-inch, C243 style.


"They just wanted some bats, good bats - maple bats," Broncos general manager Jose Melendez said.

I would probably consider offing myself if it ever came to that.

I heard the ducklings were rescued though, so it's all good.

At least it got the guys name out there. Also, I like the Real GM sig Chris is sporting right above me.

Haha there's another story to this. Odom was having immigration issues and couldn't get into Canada.
