I'm quite tired so I would need to confirm this later but I believe they can leave him off of the 25 man post season roster and there should be no issue with his contract since he'd still be on the 40 man. I can't envision any way he gets his sh!t together to be a rotation option and at this point I don't see any use for him in the pen.
I'm really pissed about how the Orioles handled this weather issue and the Yankees seem to be as well. Not only did they refuse the double header today and decided to hope to get it in on Sunday now, the Orioles want the Yankees to play the final make up game on September 8 AND at 7 PM - for reference the Yankees play September 7 at home against the Orioles at 1 then have to fly out to Anaheim for a night game on the 9th. I hope the Yankees fight tooth and nail on this. Hell, either make them play the make up game at Yankee stadium and split the gate, or fvck the Orioles back over and forfeit the game so they lose money. fvck the Orioles organization, the way they handled this was completely unprofessional but I guess that should be expected from a third rate organization.
I wasn't suggesting that it isn't technically possible for them to leave him off the playoff roster (although I wouldn't be surprised if there was some BS clause in his contract for that), just that the Yankees would be extremely hesitant to take someone getting paid that much money off the major league roster completely. Let's face it, that's the only thing that's keeping him in the rotation right now.
As for the Orioles-rain situation, yea, it's bullsh!t. You'd that these guys would be able to figure out what the logical thing to do is. And honestly, the Orioles aren't going anywhere this year, so they really shouldn't have a say in the matter.
