I could be wrong on this, but didn't they have to be a part of the club by 8/31? Or is a part of the 40 man roster by then? so confused
The Reds had 4 guys on the 60 day disabled list on 8/31.. that lets them swap in up to four players for the playoff roster which only had to be in the organization at 8/31.. It might be pitcher for pitcher substitution, and position player for position player. Walt was pretty smart to call up Negron and then put him on the ML 60 day DL.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
