With the roster as is right now, no trades. You be GM, pick your 25 man roster and opening day line up and batting order.

Why do I get the feeling that there will likely be two other names in place of Aaron Holbert and Ray Olmedo? I mean, I can't think of who they would possibly be....;)

Too early to tell - I would like to see the guys play a few games first see how they are going. Numbers don't tell the whole story.

I doubt Wilson is ready(shackleford).

I can only hope for no womack.

I can't see the Reds dealing Aurilia. I think he will be on it instead of Holbert

Wow some interesting names here to play with. I will make it as I would like to see it for purposes of trying to win this year, just because I think there are some names here which could be detrimental to that approach. But also keeping in mind that we have to groom some guys. And I might add this roster could change so in that event, I reserve the right to change it again before the season starts.

I have a feeling that Ryan Wagner will start the season in AAA unless Paul Wilson is not ready. In that case, he will take Matt Belisle's bullpen spot with Belisle moving into the 5th starter role.

IMO, this year is much easier to forecast the 25 man roster than in previous years. I'm still not sure if that's a good or a bad thing, however!

I have a feeling that Hudson will be a lot better this year...more like he was his first time up (2 years ago). If that's the case, he can replace Wilson (who will probably be on the DL), or Milton (who will probably flop and be sent to the bullpen). I am hoping Hudson surprises a lot of people...otherwise we are sunk!
