Roster management that is necessitated by participation in the Rule 5. The two aren't mutually exclusive.

That is a pretty weak link. Every player on the 25 man is part of roster management. If the FO isn't willing to move on from players for a variety of reasons then they have a roster management problem.

Is 2016 2017 2018 the year that a good pitching prospect is truly blocked by 5 good pitchers in the starting rotation? 

Offseason (noun) - a time to propose trades assuming opposing GM's can't do the same basic analysis

Those decisions have to be made because of the Rule V pick(s). That isn't a "weak link." You can agree or disagree with selections but pretending that managing a roster, 40 or 25 man, isn't part of participating in the draft is at best illogical.

Looks like Bard has a decent chance of making the Angels bullpen based on an article posted in mlbtraderumors this morning.Could be a fail (1 item) for this front office.Never liked losing Bard, but he was never healthily and now seems to be coming into his potential.

Yup. Bard's overall numbers look poor this spring, but most of that was one disastrous outing early:

https://www.mlbtrade...e-5-update.html

Didn't realize the Orioles have three Rule 5 pitchers in camp, and the Marlins and Royals each have two (as do the Pirates, admittedly with one on the DL already). And the Padres oddly have zero, after keeping 3 guys all last season.

Some of the teams with struggling Rule 5 players might DFA their own to claim Kinley, if we try to send him through waivers to remove Rule 5 restrictions.
