I know it has been a very, very, very long time since any new content has been posted to our site, but we will be silent no more. BB Baseball Talk is coming back. Be on the lookout for new blog posts, player reviews, team reviews and since it’s that time of the year we have to have playoff coverage. Thank you for all your support in the past and I hope it continues.
I didn’t realize how complicate it was to determine who is and is not eligible to be on a playoff roster. Why am I talking about this today? Because today was the last day a team can trade for a player and have that player be eligible for their playoff roster. Going forward teams can still make waiver trades, but any player acquired would not be eligible for their playoff roster.
I was going to write a great post on the full subject of playoff roster eligibility, but Dave Cameron at fangraphs.com already did it so why reinvent the wheel. To read all about it click here.
