Re: What's Your Opening Day Roster?
I believe Mike Leake will be in the rotation this year, barring injury or trade.
He may have tailed off last season, but I see him as a starter.
Many folks view him as the odd man out in the rotation. I disagree.
Just guessing, but I think Bailey is more likely to pitch from the pen than is Leake.
I think the bullpen will be Cordero, Masset, Bray, Chapman, Ondrusek, Bailey, and the last spot going to Burton, Smith or Willis.
Can't name a starting position player team yet, until we see if the Reds pick up that lead off hitter. There's still time, I'm told.
