Player to be named later

Recommended Posts

Ely Lake Expert

This is something about trades I have never understood and I hear it all the time. What if the team getting the player wants too good of a player and the team giving the player refuses to give him away and neither one will budge or come to any agreement. What happens then? How is this decided? 3rd party arbitrator?

Thanks to anyone who can explain this.

It is usually a throw in type player. A low level prospect or an organization filler as the Twins like to call it.

A Drew Butera type player.

Don't both teams have to agree? And what if they don't?

I don't know, but my guess is that it is already agreed but just not made public.

Now, who remembers the story about the guy that was traded for himself? Can't remember how it went, but I'm pretty sure it happened at least once.

And then there are the guys actually traded for inanimate objects.

The one that really gets me is when a coach is hired away and the other team gets some players for compensation.

And how does that story go about the Baseball Commissioner disallowing a trade? I think it was back in the days of Charlie O breaking up the A's.

Usually, there is a short of list of a few or maybe even a half-dozen players that both teams have agreed on, and the 'receiving' team gets to pick the one they want...it is usually because they want to look at the players a bit more or maybe complete a physical exam.

Sometimes it may be incentive based. If Monroe rocks they get this guy if he sux they get that guy, or nobody, or a very low draft pick etc.

I think I saw something about that in the "Baseball as America" display that came to the MN History Center. Anybody remember the details?

After a bit of research, I came up with this little nugget:

"In April 1962, the Mets traded catcher Harry Chiti to the Indians for a player to be named later. On June 15, the Mets received the player to be named later, who turned out to be Chiti, making Chiti the first player to be traded for himself. In 1987, in the same sort of scenario, Cubs pitcher Dickie Noles was also traded for himself."

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
