    You play GM, who makes your 25 man roster out of ST?

    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.

    Aaron Holbert is not on the 40 man roster.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    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.


    Starters: 8
    2B: Freel
    SS: Lopez
    CF: Griffey
    1B: Dunn
    RF: Kearns
    LF: Pena
    C: Larue
    3B: Encarnacion

    Bench:
    OF: Denorfia
    IF: Aurilia
    2B/OF: Womack
    COF: J. Cruz
    C: Valentin

    Rotation:
    Harang
    Claussen
    Wilson
    Milton
    Williams/Belisle/Hudson (The other 2 make the pen)

    Bullpen:
    Mercker
    Hammond
    Weathers
    Wagner
    Coffey
    Belisle
    Hudson
