I think Mike misread the Stanton trade question. The guy was saying would it take 2 grade As OR 2 A-s and a B+ to get him. Not all 5. I love Mike’s example though of Miller, Rosenthal, Martinez, Tavares and Joe Kelly for Stanton.

As a Marlins fan, I have had a similar thought for a couple of weeks, but I replaced Miller for Mat Adams and I added either one of their minor league power bullpen arms or Mat Carpenter

You look pretty stupid saying the rule 5 draft means nothing. For a lot of teams, its a way to add mid level prospects that you otherwise didn’t have. They spend a year in the majors, if you like them, you keep them. If not, you give them back for a small price. And Rhiner Cruz is still plenty young and shouldn’t have been in the majors last year. But the Astros love his arm and his ceiling is high. He got valuable experience in the process. Once again, I dont know where you people come from, but you blow when it comes to baseball knowledge. I guess it helps when all the nerds who couldn’t actually play the sport worship at your feet while you spit out things you have never witnessed, dont know a damn thing about, and literally make up on the spot.

The general consensus is just that there won’t be too many more Johan Santana, Dan Uggla, or Joakim Sorias taken in the Rule 5 given the new rules for protecting players. There’s still obviously the potential to get something of value, the ceiling is just now utility players and relievers basically.

No one is asking you to agree with everything every writer says (I sure as hell don’t). But if your contribution to the site is a totally super hilarious “fag” pun and ranting, why even take the time to read the articles here, let alone the chat transcripts?
