  • Destination: The Show. Episode 12.

    Jeremy Nygaard

    It's that time of the year again! Major League teams need to set their 40-man rosters in advance of the annual Rule 5 draft. Every team has decisions to make. Some are easy decisions. Some are hard decisions. And some teams will make mind-numbingly bad decisions. Or at least that's what their fans think.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but for the main group, this is the last year of that bizarre quirk that was mentioned involving the Rule 5 clock starting early for the DSL crew, right, given the fact the signing date got moved to the offseason? Like the Quero class is this season, but Chourio’s isn’t next offseason but rather the following one.
