Former Giants Minor Leaguer Traded...for 10 bats

I hate fan shots, so you get a full post for this one!

John Odom was released by the Giants last season, and has been working in the indy leagues since. 

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.
My favorite quote is this one: 
"I don't really care," he said Friday. "It'll make a better story if I make it to the big leagues."
Yea, keep dreaming, bud.  And I consider myself one of the nice guys.
