New Rule 5 draft rule

I have noticed with larger rosters, that veteran players who still have useful seasons left are being hoarded rather than dropped or retired. I believe this is a fair compromise and each owner will receive 2 exemptions for players you are waiting on to have a breakout season.

Rule 5 veteran Rule: Beginning after 1988 season after progression Any player 30 or older who (a) hasn't obtained rookie status of 130 AB or 50 IP or (b) players aged 30 and up who havent appeared in game in two or more full seasons will be eligble for rule 5 status. Special draft will be held prior to supplemental draft. If player goes undrafted they'll be placed back on your team. Team drafting rule 5 player must keep player on major league roster entire season--except in case of injury. I realize sometimes teams will hold a veteran waiting for an upcoming season where they excel. Each owner is allowed 2 exemptions and they must be filed with myself or Will prior to day 60 of current season.
