    Johan Santana was the biggest Rule 5 steal of all time. It rarely happens that a great player comes out of this draft.
    I bent my wookie...

    Yep, I get that. I just don't understand why Johan Santana that makes the Rule 5 draft "over-rated." Nobody participates in this draft and looking at this thread, and half the participants didn't even know how it worked until they did some googling. And that's fine. But my definition of "Over-rated" involves some sort of respect or high regard. I think 'mostly irrelevant' is a more accurate description.

    A power arm like Jim Hoey?

    I like the rule 5 draft. Sure, they usually don't pan out, but Doyle cost $25000 for a try. It didn't work out and he goes back to the rival. Big Deal! There is no risk, but a slight chance at reward. The only downside is when the team keeps a guy like Diamond and let's a guy like Bullock go. And even that is probably not a big deal.

    Shane Mack wasn't a bad move either.
