Trade of the Day: Scioscia for Gretzky

How's this for a Minor League trade?

Matt Scioscia is a 25-year-old first baseman and former standout at Notre Dame.

Gretzky, the Cubs' seventh-round pick in the 2011 draft, is an outfielder/1B with a career .288/.335/.332 line in two Minor League seasons. At 21, he has some legitimate upside.

It's not often that you see a trade involving the sons of an all-time great and longtime manager. Very cool.
