    25 Man Roster....

    Whoever guesses the 25 man opening day roster the closest will get rep points from me (and whoever else from ORG that would like to contribute). Not limited to Reds Live! posters only, so posters with 200+ can win too.

    In event of a tie: please post your lineup & starting rotation, etc.

    Re: 25 Man Roster....

    Crap, I meant to vote for Jeff Conine, but missed it.

    Lineup:
    RF Ryan Freel
    1B Scott Hatteberg
    CF Ken Griffey Jr.
    3B Edwin Encarnacion
    LF Adam Dunn
    C David Ross
    2B Brandon Phillips
    SS Alex Gonzalez
    P Aaron Harang

    Rotation:
    1. Aaron Harang
    2. Bronson Arroyo
    3. Eric Milton
    4. Kyle Lohse
    5. Kirk Saarloos
    CL. Mike Stanton
    SU. David Weathers
    SU. Todd Coffey
    MR. Bill Bray
    MR. Gary Majewski
    MR. Rheal Cormier
    LR/MU. Elizardo Ramirez

    Bench:
    1B/COF. Jeff Conine (@1B vs LHP)
    C. Javier Valentin (starts 40-50% vs RHP)
    OF. Chris Denorfia (about 3 starts a week [Grif/Freel])
    INF. Juan Castro (late inning defensive replacement, utility)
    5th OF. Bubba Crosby (25th man)

    Almost:
    - Josh Hamilton (we picked him up in the draft which almost makes him a guaranteed pick, depends on spring training performance; picked Crosby over him because Bubba signed a major league contract)
    - Chad Moeller (the dumb 3 catcher rule we go by almost made me put him on the team, but just not enough room)
    - Homer Bailey (stud prospect, probably starts in the minors)
    - Matt Belisle (really wanted him on the team, if it were me picking he would probably make the team over Cormier)
    - Brian Shackelford (already too many LHP)
    - Victor Santos (long shot as 5th starter but the Saarloos trade ruled him out)
    - Jared Burton (another draft pick see Hamilton)
    - Paul Wilson (kidding)
    - Mark Bellhorn (kind of need another INF backup, Freel may have to fill in as needed)

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Re: 25 Man Roster....

    I like playing this game too much to pass up. I might as well grab a few points as well if I can.

    Rotation: 4
    Harang
    Arroyo
    Milton
    Lohse

    BP: 8
    Weathers
    Stanton
    Coffey
    Cormier
    Bray
    Majewski
    Belisle
    Saarloos

    Starters: 8
    C: Ross
    1B: Hatteberg
    2B: Phillips
    SS: A-Gon
    3B: EE
    OF: Dunn
    OF: Freel
    OF: Griffey

    Bench: 5
    C: Valentin
    1B/OF: Conine
    OF: Denorfia
    IF: Castro
    IF: Bellhorn

    Although I think Keppinger might be a better fit, Bellhorn gets the nod due to his experience for the 25th man spot. Although that likely means Keppy would end up DFA in order to get Bellhorn on the 40 man. I would also like to believe that Hamilton could somehow get there, I think it's more likely that something else happens on that front. I also would rather have EZ eventually as our 5th starter but he has options, so they will likely use them.

    It's good to know Norris Hopper has exactly 2 fans, as of this post.

    A few don't have Milton, Edwin, or A-Gonz on the 25 man roster...I would like to see that Milton trade!

    Re: 25 Man Roster....

    More people have juan castro making the 25 than agonzo.... interesting

    Also I appear to be the only vote for santos making the 25 in the bullpen as the long relief swingman...

    Those points are as good as mine sweetheart

    If Milton pitches in AAA for 9 mil a year I will shoot myself

    Why would AGon not make the team after signing a 3 yr deal?
