Yeah after he got doubled off multiple times and made the excuse about the signs. Like I said don’t be ignorant. We all know what happened.

If it was as simple as that he wouldn't have been called up in the first place.

ignoring whatever the rest of that gibberish was, let's make a rule that you don't qualify for #letthekidsplay if

A) this is your 5th MLB season

AND

B) you have at least 3 children

does this have nothing to do with getting Hoerner eligible for playoffs?

It appears that was probably the main reason.

A player who doesn't meet said criteria for postseason eligibility can still be added to a team's roster in the postseason via petition to the Commissioner's Office if the player was in the organization on Aug. 31 and is replacing someone who is on the injured list and has served the minimum amount of time required for activation. (For example, a player on the 10-day injured list who has been on it for at least 10 days, or a player who has been on the 60-day injured list for at least 60 days.)


Screwing Russell over is a nice side effect, though. I'm sure Edith Cox is out somewhere bemoaning that that's thousands of dollars that could've gone to his children and saying the Cubs are in the wrong for this.

Nico was in the organization on 8-31 and can replace any of our 60 day DL pitchers assuming they haven't added a position requirement.

I have no clue how the rule works, but my assumption was that he had to be replacing a DL'd person when he was brought to the majors to be eligible.

Nah, K-Rod replaced some guy who didn't play all year for the '02 Angels and Kevin Hart less famously came up with us in September and made the postseason roster in '07.
