Second try at projecting the roster

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Mar 16, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Lineup (post suspensions)
Damon LF
Jeter SS
Abreu RF
Rodriguez 3B
Giambi 1B
Posada C
Matsui DH
Cano 2B
Cabrera CF

Bench
Duncan
Molina
Betemit
Ensberg

Rotation
Wang
Pettitte
Mussina
Hughes
Kennedy

Bullpen
Rivera
Chamberlain
Farnsworth
Hawkins
Traber
Patterson
Albaladejo

Notes: I’m not crazy about Betemit being my only backup at SS and 2B but Chris Woodward hasn’t shown enough to keep Ensberg off the team. … Brett Gardner needs to play every day in AAA rather than ride the pine in the majors. … I need to find out if Patterson can go three innings before I put him on the team. If not, Karstens is the choice. … Albaledejo, Bruney or Ohlendorf, flip a coin.

You absolutely CAN NOT monkey with the roster because of the suspensions. Why waste options for the sake of three days? There’s a day off after Opening Day, anyway. If Matsui can’t start three games in four days in left, he should be on the DL.
