RBI for RBI Trades
We all know that the players in RBI Baseball are legends and are pretty much untradeable. The exception to the rule, however, is when you give up an RBI'er yet get another RBI'er in return. Here's a listing of all the trades that involved one RBI'er for another RBI'er. Thanks to fightonusc of the forums for making this list. If you know anymore, drop me an email...
