IMO, it was very mixed results for DD with his dumpster diving. Great through 2014 then no good afterward. Carrying a rule 5 guy every year basically meant we were playing with 24. And carrying 3 last year was probably the dumbest thing DD ever did. That one year he tried to carry Jason Garcia. Completely messed up the bullpen as Buck had to hide the guy until they came up with a mystery injury like they always do. What a joke.
Carrying a rule 5 guy who isn’t that good is a lot different than participating in the rule 5.
