Today's Rule 5 Draft Offers Questions; Possible Answers
Friday, February 10th, 2034
"I don't know if ownership will keep thinking like they have or not," said Philadelphia manager Andruw Jones. "The management group has always suggested we take a pick in the Rule 5 draft if our system allows it, and it wouldn't be out of the question for them to add another player this year." One might make a case that the Quakers shouldn't make a pick this year and that a farm system is in place already to offer up home-grown opportunities.

"We may have a hard time finding a spot," Jones continued, "We already have tough decisions to make with internal options. I say we, but I mean they. Maybe they'll decide to draft a bench player. The Rule 5 Draft is a free way to add talent. Not my decision, but it doesn't hurt to at least take a look at a player, even if he doesn't make it out of Spring Training."
