Perfect Rule Changes to Fix September Roster Expansion Problems

September brings about many changes in Major League Baseball, notably the expansion of rosters. Teams are going to make improvements by dipping into their bag of prospects and other minor leaguers who could play a key role in the playoff push or get a leg up on winning a job in 2014. 

Despite the flexibility that the roster expansion provides to a manager, the whole system is flawed. There is no rhyme or reason to why you are allowed to have 38 players in the final month compared to 25 the rest of the year.

Since we don't like to gripe without having ideas to make things better, we thought it was about time to look at what MLB can do to make the September roster expansion fair and help it make sense. 

We have five ideas, some will actually feed off each other, while others might be vastly different from the one that came before it but at least they will all be fair and reasonable compared to what we have now.
