Besides Dan Uggla, the Marlins' most "famous" Rule 5 Draft pick is Johan Santana who was then immediately traded to the Twins for Jared Camp.

But I just found out something I hadn't realized until now... The Marlins picked Santana number 2 in the draft, the Twins picked Camp number 1 in the same draft....

Can anyone explain to me why this happened like this? They say that this was a prearranged deal too so if the Twins wanted Santana and they had the first pick why didn't they just pick Santana themselves? This completely blows my mind.
