I still like King's idea of Robbie being traded for himself 5 months later

I am betting it will be either Harris, Uribe, Valentin, or SHoeny. We have alog jam at 2B/SS now.

It will be nobody who has ever been mentioned on this board, and we will never hear about them again.

PTBNL is rarely ever an actual ML roster player.

I would KW Jr., but he didn't sign. Maybe they'll trade his rights.

"OK. I gave up Josh Fields. Which one, do you ask? I don't know that yet. I told my secretary to call the Arizona GM with whichever one she feels. What's in a name, anyway?"

I thought i already told you, robbie alomar.And how exactly are we going to trade a guy who is only signed for the rest of this year? The Dbacks wouldn't want him even if he was signed. They are going young and are committed to Scott Hairston for now.

And there are those who'll STILL bash KW over it and calim that he "stripped the farm system". These are the ones who still miss Edwin Almonte, even though he's pumping gas these days.....

If it's not an ML roster player, who do you think'll go down?

PTBNL is rarely ever an actual ML roster player.
This board is showing it's ignorance -- A PTBNL can not be on a ML roster -- A PTBNL can't even be on the 40 man roster.

Player To Be Named Later
Quite often, you'll read that a player has been traded to another team for "a player to be named later."

There are two restrictions at work here. First, the transaction must be completed within six months. And second, the player named later can't have played in the same league as the team he's being traded to. That's why the player named later is almost always a minor leaguer.

And what if the teams can't agree on who that player will be? This happens rarely, but if no names are agreed upon initially, the clubs will agree on a price to paid in lieu of a player.

Sometimes, at the time of the deal the team receiving the player will provide the other club a list of minor leaguers, and later the club will have their pick of the players on that list. This list is negotiated at the time of the trade. In recent years, the Minnesota Twins lost Enrique Wilson this way. When it came time for Cleveland to make their choice, the Twins did what they could to "hide" Wilson, but the Indians found him anyway.

Finally, sometimes "Player to be named later" is used to trade players on the Disabled List, since it can be embarrassing for a club to trade for a guy who's on the DL.
