Rule V picks

The Boston Globe has the list of Rule V picks

Of interest to Cub fans, Randy Wells from the AAA Iowa Cubs was chosen by Toronto.  Wells is a righthanded fireballer.  He was tearing up single-A Daytona (10-2, 2.74 106 K in 98.2 IP) in ’05 being promoted.  Same story in ’06 when he was putting up great numbers in AA Tennessee (4-2, 1.56, 56 K in 63.1) before moving on to AAA. 

Wells’ ERA rose a bit in 2007 (4.52) but he continued his strikeout rate (101 in 95.2) at AAA Iowa.  No doubt he’s got some stuff. 

At least we won’t see him in our division ala Josh Hamilton

  1. I think Brian Barton is the best guy claimed in this year’s Rule V Draft.

    There is no doubt he is the SMARTEST one.

    I like the new layout, but I’m disappointed that I no longer have to type in “CUBS.” Or maybe I’m disappointed that Teddy Ballgame no longer has to type in “CUBS.”
