OXON HILL, Md. -- A hundred dollars can still go a long way in baseball.This week, the Boston Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers made a trade involving two big leaguers, two minor leaguers and a player to be named later or cash.The amount? Yep, $100.Less than daily meal money for guys in the bigs last season. Far less than the price of a box seat at many ballparks.In a multibillion-dollar sport where $100 million contracts are becoming common, it looked like a misprint. Instead, it was right on the money.Major League Baseball rules require an alternate cash consideration to be listed for deals that involve a player to be named, just in case something goes awry. Could be $50,000, maybe more.Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said in this case, he and Milwaukee general manager David Stearns were sure there would be no problems. So they just wrote down any old amount.Well, almost.They usually dont like when you make it $1, Dombrowski said Wednesday, smiling, so we made it $100.That made things official -- Boston got reliever Tyler Thornburg, and Milwaukee received infielder Travis Shaw, a pair of minor leaguers and a player to be named or that $100.The winter meetings this week featured far more pricey transactions, with closer Aroldis Chapman agreeing to an $86 million deal with the Yankees and reliever Mark Melancon getting $62 million from the Giants. Recently, slugger Yoenis Cespedes got $110 million from the Mets.But last year, there actually were at least two deals for just $1. Often, such moves are done as a courtesy.The Mets paid San Diego a dollar on May 28 for first baseman James Loney, who was stuck in Triple-A for the Padres but had a chance to play regularly in New York.On Sept. 22, Pittsburgh needed a reliever for a week-plus and gave $1 to the Yankees for Phil Coke. It was a worthy move -- for those four quarters, the Pirates got four scoreless innings. Terrell Owens Super Bowl Jersey .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. Dante Pettis Super Bowl Jersey . The FA rejected Wilsheres appeal that the length of his punishment was "clearly excessive" and said Thursday his suspension begins with immediate effect. He will miss league matches against Chelsea on Monday and West Ham on Dec. http://www.authenticsf49erspro.com/Frank...rs-jersey/ . Louis Cardinals. Victorino is batting sixth and playing right field after missing two games because of back tightness. Mitch Wishnowsky Super Bowl Jersey . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Raheem Mostert Super Bowl Jersey . Malkin got tangled up with Detroits Luke Glendening early in the third period and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburghs net. AUSTIN, Texas -- Shaka Smart will start his second season as Texas coach a bit short-handed.Mareik Isom, a senior forward expected to be an important reserve, will miss a few weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery for a bacterial infection in his left ankle, Smart said Monday.Sophomore guards Kerwin Roach Jr. and Tevin Mack, both competing for starting positions, will also miss Wednesdays exhibition against Angelo State for violating unspecified team rules.It was a matter than occurred months ago, but obviously we havent played games, Smart said. Its important for us to provide accountability for our guys.The 21st-ranked Longhorns open the regular season on Nov. 11 against Incarnate Word. Smart would not say if Roach and Mack will play in that game, only that they will be back soon.Isom is one of four Longhorrns who play center or power forward.ddddddddddddHe averaged 6 points and 2.7 rebounds per game last season at Arkansas-Little Rock before transferring to Texas. The likely starting big men are 6-8 senior Shaq Cleare and 6-11 freshman Jarrett Allen.Roach averaged 7.5 points last season as a reserve. He might be the starting point guard this season, but freshman Andrew Jones is also in the mix. Both are combo guards who have not played the point exclusively, Smart said. Mack averaged 5.1 points as a wing or power forward when Smart used smaller lineups.Texas finished 20-13 last season, losing to Northern Iowa on a buzzer-beating, half-court shot in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
