Anyone have any ideas about who the best rule 5 draft selections might be this year? First off, please do not post any subsciber info here from sites like baseballamerica.
The following site has a list of possible rule 5 picks:
But I thought the community here might be able to produce a better list. Anyone who knows their own favorite team's farm very well can probably figure out the most vulnerable guys in that system.
As for who's eligible to be drafted this year, it mostly comes down to anyone not on the 40 man roster, who was:
a> Drafted or signed in 2003, and over 18 (generally all college players from that year's draft), or...
b> Drafted or signed in 2002 or earlier.
So make your suggestions below.
Here's a few I think are eligible:

Lumsden i just misread when I looked him up, Murpy was traded last week, the other two I was wrong because of a rule change I wasn't aware of. The clock now starts with the players first minor league season, not when he signs.
