true but most Rule V picks end up that way. There are exceptions of course, I mean Pirates fans probably know better than just about anyone how well they can work out , but most don’t end up being particularly meaningful.

there was not anybody out there that was really worthwhile though, and this team is too talented to worry about losing rule 5 players
