Scioscia, on Commissioner Bud Selig's Special Committee for On-Field Matters, would like to see that number decrease to 30.
"It's just not representative of what a championship roster is for a championship season," Scioscia said of rosters with nearly 40 players. "There's a lot of strategy in when you build a roster. I think a team that has consciously gotten those players that are versatile to help them through a Major League season loses that advantage when a roster can be 40, because the versatility isn't as much of a factor."
