Bako
Javy
Freel
Hopper
Castro
Hatte/Votto

but unless my math is wrong, isnt' there definitely gonna be a person from that list gone at some point, right?

12 pitchers + 8 starters only leaves room for 5 bench guys.

Not to mention if Hatte is traded or Votto sent down, we're looking at a potential bench of the first 5 on that list :(

God willing it will be Castro gone but if I had to guess it'll be Bako pending on what happens to Ross.

also, even if we were to trade Stanton for a Wes Helms type player, it's another big problem, granted you get bray back in the bullpen, but you add a bench player and have to cut someone else, if we could dump bako and Castro I think we could have a nice set up, along with stanton being trade for Helms of course.

I'd have ZERO problem with that bench to start the season.
