Anybody they replace Quentin with could be on the playoff roster since Quentin was on the active roster before September 1st. IMO, I don't think the Pale Hoes just let a roster spot go to waste in the middle of a playoff chase.
If they bring someone in, he can't be on the playoff roster. He had to be in the Sox system at the end of August. They might dl him right before the playoffs to get someone onto the playoff roster. But that's then -- there's basically no reason to dl him until the season's essentially over.
Also, they have free spots on the roster now (only 35 on the active roster). I don't think any team brings up all 40 players.
It sucks, but you're basically out of luck in a keeper.
