It's Better Than a Sixth-Round Draft Choice...

In "Stolen Season", David Lamb mentions that minor leaguers have been traded for sacks of balls, but in Romania a player was traded for 33 lbs of meat (the type of meat wasn't specified). The kicker?

"We are upset because we lost twice -- firstly because we lost a good player and secondly because we lost our team's food for a whole week," a Regal Horia official was quoted as saying by the daily in its electronic edition -- the guy retired "to find a job in agriculture or construction". Ouch.
