HYB: Rot and Seedling Selection

I was curious what everybody might think.

While cleaning up the seedlings this year, I noticed one 
cross where nearly 50% of the seedlings showed signs of 
rot.  It seems to me that the entire cross would likely be 
a good candidate to discard based on the poor performance 
of the group as a whole.

But I was wondering what the thoughts were on the stronger 
sibs.  It seems that they would potentially carry the weak 
trait which they could pass on.  Does anyone have any 
experience with seedlings whose sibs are poor with respect 
to results in subsequent generations?  Just in general, I 
know that there will always be exceptions.
