Tim Kurkjan just mentioned this on the ESPN show. Roland Hemond, when he was the GM of the Orioles (not sure what year this was...the Orioles missed the playoffs in '89 by 2.0 games), tried to acquire Mark Langston through waivers the night before the last game of the season so he could pitch that game to help the Orioles get into the playoffs, but he of course would have been ineligible for any playoff games.
