Re: Rule 5 Draft Discussion
I don't know why anybody is worried about the Valenzuela pickup, which has to be thought about completely separately from the Guevara issue. Three things are going to happen with Valenzuela. One is not very likely: he'll be so good he sticks on the 25 man roster. One is a little more likely: he's really bad and we send him back to the Braves, paying the 50 grand. The third is most likely of all, in fact, so likely I suspect it's pretty well already understood by the Reds and Braves: the kid's promising, we work out a minor league deal, he pitches where he belongs this year, at about Chattanooga.
