One more time.
Without demotion penalties, some that are permanent, smart owners will use their 40 man roster as their 25 man roster. I don't understand why this is so hard to understand.
Theo Epstein regularly says that he thinks of his big league roster as the 40 man, not the 25 man.
I've heard him say that at least a half-dozen times.
Not that that's the end of the discussion, but I don't really see the problem with using the whole 40 to get through the season. Gives an advantage to those that think a little more deeply about their team.
