Traded for bats

On the news this morning I heard about a player named John Odom.  He is a minor league player who was just traded from the Calgary Vipers to the Laredo Broncos.  You would think that if Odom went to the Broncos the Vipers would get another player or perhaps money in return.  Thats not the case here.  In return the Vipers received 10 maple bats valued at $69.00 a piece.  This has to be one of the strangest trades ever made in baseball.  I wonder how many bats Alex Rodriguez is worth?
