    What's Your Opening Day Roster?

    Note: I overlooked Dontrelle Willis. Feel free to pick only five and list Willis in your comment below.

    With the acquisition of Renteria, I figure 19 of the 25 roster spots are locked up. How would you fill the other six if no other acquisitions are made?

    These guys are sure to start the year on the team:
    Ramon Hernandez
    Ryan Hanigan
    Joey Votto
    Brandon Phillips
    Scott Rolen
    Edgar Renteria
    Paul Janish
    Miguel Cairo
    Jonny Gomes
    Drew Stubbs
    Jay Bruce
    Bronson Arroyo
    Johnny Cueto
    Edinson Volquez
    Homer Bailey
    Francisco Cordero
    Nick Masset
    Bill Bray
    Jared Burton

    Very good chance to make the team:
    Chris Heisey - could be optioned if outperformed by Brian Barton, Jeremy Hermida, and/or a new acquisition
    Travis Wood - odd man out?
    Mike Leake - see: Travis Wood
    Logan Ondrusek - was 2010 a fluke?
    Aroldis Chapman - may go to AAA to transition back to starting

    On the bubble:
    Yonder Alonso - left-handed bat off the bench
    Chris Valaika - utility player to spell the veterans
    Juan Francisco - left-handed bat off the bench and Rolen's primary backup
    Todd Frazier - primary backup at the corner positions
    Brian Barton - could take over Chris Heisey's role
    Jeremy Hermida - could become Gomes' platoon partner
    Danny Dorn - see: Jeremy Hermida
    Sam LeCure - showed success as a reliever
    Matt Maloney - has had success in limited playing time
    Daryl Thompson - could he have success in a relief role?
    Carlos Fisher - can he finally translate his success in the minors to MLB?
    Phil Valiquette - stranger things have happened
    Jose Arredondo - can he rebound to pre-injury form?
    Jordan Smith - groundball reliever has shown flashes of effectiveness
    Daniel Ray Herrera - has his control returned?
