the 40 man crunch

Postby series65cubsfan » Fri Sep 05, 2008 2:56 am

Mephistopheles, I would like to see an article or something said about the Rule 'V', and it's implications on the Cubs. Who would you protect and why? While Rundle may be making a case,?! there are, it seems, so many that may be on the way out. Namely, Cedeno. Lost 'prospect'? Protected too soon?

There are a million ways to figure this and I would like your input if possible. Great to see you on the Draft page, and hopefully, you will post on the minor league page soon. Thanks.

obligatory "It's rule 5 not rule V" post.

I think this year might be one of the eaier years as far as Rule 5 goes. If they have to, the Cubs can de roster K Hill, McGeHee, Fuld, and Fox. There's also Lieber and Edmonds who will be gone.

There is no way that Rundle needs to be protected yet is there?

Nope. He was drafted in the 14th round in 2006, so we've still got a while.

I too would like to know how much Jennifer Lopez weighs. But seriously, a quick 40 man article would be great Meph.
