Major League Baseball is considering changing September roster rules in order to limit the number of players eligible for any given game.
The most common scenario under discussion is to expand September rosters to 30, with each club's 25-man roster on Aug. 31 being locked in throughout September.
In other words, each team would use that 25-man roster as a base throughout September, and then have the ability to add five minor-leaguers (out of however many are recalled) to its active roster for each game during the season's final month.
What do you think? Off the top of my head, I'd question how many games this would really dramatically change. Even in their high-scoring, 12-8 loss to Milwaukee the other day, the Pirates only used 15 players. They used 21 each in 13-4 and 15-1 losses to the Marlins and Dodgers, respectively, last September, but even that would be well within the range of possibility with a 30-man roster.
