    Given the ten day minimum when you are optioned, would this by rule mean that he will not be eligible for the postseason roster, if he's not on the 25-man on August 31st?

    Can't have too much Veteran Creaminess.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    was not expecting that, even with Mes' struggles lately I thought we'd stick with him

    Barring injury.

    To be eligible for a team’s playoff roster a player must be on either a)the 25 man active roster, b)the disabled list, c)the bereavement list, d)the suspended list as of August 31st at midnight.
    If an eligible player is injured and unable to play a club can call up any player in the organization regardless of their roster status* provided that the replacement player plays the same position (position player for position player and pitcher for pitcher), the replacement player was in the organization as of the August 31st deadline and they finished the season in the organization, and they receive approval from the commissioner.
    *The player would need to be added to the 40 man roster if they weren’t on it before they could be activated. They just wouldn’t have needed to be on the 40 man roster by any other deadlines.

    Black hole offensively and a move that should have happened months ago.

    I like Navarro's bat and Hoover seems to be ready as well.

    Mesoraco probably isnt a good as fit as navarro on playoff roster anyway. He isnt going to be allowed to catch latos arroyo or cueto for sure, and maybe not even bailey or leake now in a clutch game. so if youre looking at a strictly backup catcher in playoffs with only pinch hitting duties navarro is probably the play due to lack of lefties on bench.

    I am on board with this move - Mes has looked pretty helpless and overmatched at the plate. Maybe a couple of weeks of consistent at-bats will help.

    When speaking of Mes' playoff eligibility, Fay wrote "He is not automatically eligible for the postseason roster, but he can replace any player currently on the disabled list."

    What does he mean by currently?

    I'm struggling with interpreting that a bit myself.

    He means that a mystery DL can happen before midnight on August 31st.

    Wouldn't the DL'ed player have to be a catcher? (per texasdave's copying of the rules up above)

    EDIT: Apparently, the position requirement only applies if you're replacing an injured player during a series. Since he's in the organization as of Aug. 31, he can replace anyone who was on the DL as of 8/31 (i.e. Madson) [tweet]

    ah, so we can use a Madson loophole here?

    I don't get it. He's not going to use Navaro off the bench as a left handed bat because he never uses his second catcher
    as a pinch hitter. Does this mean we will be subjected to watching Navarro catch at some point? That's worse than watching Redmond pitch.
