Re: The Official 'Who Do We Protect from the Rule Five Draft?' Thread
Given how bad our W-L record is going to be this season, I'd like to see the Reds go with 39 guys and try to pull someone from rule V (since we will have an early pick). I admit that I am not an expert on all these prospects, but the lack of depth at the ML level in position players means we could probably carry someone next year. Maybe draft a toolsy SS or OF like the Padres did with Bip Roberts years ago. Carry him for one year and then send him down to the minors.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
