Josh Reddick trades his jersey number to Billy Butler for a winch

Billy Butler has worn No. 16 since 2008. His new team, the Oakland Athletics, already has a No. 16. Only one way to settle this: A NEW WINCH!

It's not unheard of for players to offer expensive gifts to get a favored number. Rolexes are pretty standard in this situation. But since Reddick plays for the A's, a team making some baffling moves this offseason (and shuffling the deck most offseasons), he probably knows he can be traded at literally any instant, so you may as well get a free $940 winch while you can!
