The Mysterious PTBNL in the Ike Davis Deal

As most, if not all of you know, Ike Davis was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates on the evening of April 19th.

Pirates lose Wei-Chung Wang to the Brewers in a confusing Rule 5 draft

The Rule 5 draft was this morning and in one of the more surprising and weird Rule 5 picks in a while, they lost left-handed pitcher Wei-Chung Wang to the Brewers. This whole thing is just bizarre, so let's start with the basics: Wang will be 22 in April, he's from Taiwan, and he's pitched a grand total of 47 1/3 innings of professional baseball on American soil, with all of those...
