Toby Gardenhire would be a logical choice.
Well first the Twins would have to bring him back into the organization... but in all seriousness the clear answer is a 4th catcher.

More interesting is the 26th man. In fact, this is the solution to avoid playing World Series games in November - schedule a split double-header every Saturday from Memorial Day to the Sunday before the All-Star break. I think that would be 7 Saturdays, but if not add a Saturday before or after. Doing that would shorten the season by one week - and allow teams to have a 26th player for the entire day, of course.
MLB is indeed considering allowing split doubleheaders for just that reason - schedule congestion. They're not considering them as often, but they are moving to allowing each team to schedule 1 per season. If it catches on, who knows?
