Re: Last Few Spots for Opening Day Roster
I'd like to see Gomes and Ward fill the bench spots. (left and right handed power, also Gomes getting some starts in left against left-handed pitching)
Bailey or Owings is going to get the 5th spot in the rotation. If bailey gets it, I think Owings will still make the team out of the bullpen. If Owings wins the starting spot, I could see Masset getting that long relief role with Bailey going to AAA.[/QUOTE]
This is just about how I see it unfolding.Gomes imo is just about a lock considering it looks like he will now not only see time in the OF but be the back up at 1B.Ward seems like he would be a nice fit taking over Javies spot pinch hitting but seeing little time in the field.I think Baily wins the 5th spot and Owing goes to the pen.
