I always thought the rule V draft was unfair to the teams. The whole purpose of the draft was to free players who were blocked. Unfortunalty, teams are being forced to put players on the 40 man who have TJ surgery and lose 2 years of development. I think teams should be allowed to make injury exemptions based on total days lost due to injury.


This would be a slippery slope to a perverse incentive structure wherein players rush back from injury so as not to lose service time. If a player gets hurt and misses service time to the point that he's Rule 5 eligible, tough luck for the team.


But then you have the other problem where pitchers are being drafted in the Rule V and they end up wasting a year sitting in the bullpen waiting for a blow out game so they can get some work. The Rule V system is really flawed.

Sooo apparently they're going with that whole stupid start extra innings with a runner on second in the minor leagues this year. I'm getting very worried they'll bring this junk to MLB and it'll be like the dopey college football OT or the NHL 3-on-3/shootout.

NHL 3 on 3 OT is great. I don't see the runner on 2B nonsense getting into MLB however.

It's not baseball anymore then. At least hockey has a precedent for playing with fewer players on the ice.

Usually putting it in the minor leagues is the last step before putting it in MLB, especially after they already had this junk in the WBC (though at least you could understand it then because pitchers have to pitch a finite amount in March).

Playing devil's advocate, you could argue that it's justified in the minors because outcomes don't really matter and you need to protect young pitchers' arms.

You probably don't have a top prospect pitching the 11th through 14th innings.

Not a fan... however I wasn’t a fan of college footballs overtime rules initially, so I’m willing to give it a chance. It’s only the minors.....

Does playing Wilmer Flores in LF qualify?
