Re: Reds 40 man roster and next year's Rule 5 draft
I don't know what the service time requirement is to be Rule 5 eligible but it doesn't seem as if Johnny Cueto has been around long enough.
Management of 40 man spots should be a consideration in deciding which, if any, players not already on the 40 should be Sept callups. The Reds will be drafting high and I'd like to save one spot on on the 40 fot a Rule 5 draftee. We might get a guy who could help in '09 and beyound.
