I'm I the only one that thinks the rule that a player has to be on the 40 man roster to be called up in September is stupid. I could see only 40 man roster player being eligible for the playoffs but for clubs like the Reds that are clearly out of contention why not let young players come up and get some ABs and a taste of the big leagues, even if they are no on the 40 man. Reward some guys who have busted ther fannies all year, or on the precipice of jumping to the next level anyway. It would go way to reward some players for hard work and/or to evaluate some of the younger guys that have some real potential. sometimes it seems that the baseball people let the lawyers run the game with stupid rules.
