Quote: Buster Olney on Changing Sept. Call Up Rules

“There is growing momentum toward some kind of adjustment with the structure of September rosters.  As it stands, teams are able to call up as many players from their 40-man rosters as they want – and so, in the final month of the year, there will be games in which a team with 33 players will be competing against a team with 28 players… The change that is probably forthcoming is uniformity in the number of players eligible for both teams for each game.  In other words, if the Red Sox are playing against the Kansas City Royals in September, both teams would have to declare which 25 players – or 26, or 27, or whatever number is settled upon – are eligible to play in that particular game.”
