    You Know you're Really Not Wanted when...

    Saw this on the transactions on mlb.com from 3-24, apologies if it was already brought up somewhere:

    San Diego Padres
    Sent RHP Seth Etherton outright to Triple-A Portland. The Royals declined to take the Rule 5 pick back.

    Maybe too expensive - the Royals would have to give back $25,000.

    True. Although I'll point out that it would have cost the Royals $25,000 to take Etherton back. If they didn't have a spot for him -- and if they did, he probably wouldn't have been exposed to Rule 5 in the first place -- no sense spending the money.

    Edit: Nugget beat me to it.
