Re: The Official 'Who Do We Protect from the Rule Five Draft?' Thread
Baseball is a business. Which player has more value: Sam LeCure or Kip Wells? I'd be willing to bet that it's Sam LeCure. There is a long list of players who could replace Wells without missing a beat, so if they're going to let LeCure go, they should trade him before the rule five draft takes place so it frees up a roster spot and gains them a player with a Major League future instead of just $50,000-$100,000.
