    Opening Day 25 Man Roster - Thoughts?

    Napoli, Pedoria, Iglesias, Middlebrooks, Bradley Jr, Ellsbury, Victorino, Salty, Gomes, Nava, Ciriaco, Ross, Linares.

    Lester, Buchholz, Lackey, Dempster, Doubront, Miller, Tazawa, Mortenson, Aceves, Bailey, Hanrahan, Uehara.

    Reasoning: Carp and Sweeney don't give you anything that you won't get from Bradley or Nava. Linares gives you RH off bench and he has earned the spot.

    Carp, Sweeney and Overbay have combined to hit 0 HR's. No one will pick them up.

    Bullpen: Hanrahan has been awful, but they have no choice.

    DL: Ortiz, Drew, Morales, Breslow

    Carp has 1 HR/ 4 RBIs in 30 ABs so far.  That's 20 HRs and 80 RBIs in 600 ABs.  LOL

    My bad. I missed that. I didn't miss the .212 average however. And Sweeney shouldn't sniff the clubhouse after what he did last year and no home runs in how many at bats?

    Carp is a butcher in the field. I'd keep Overbay over him. Of course I'd keep Linares over either but I don't make those decisions.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    My difference is no Linares. I go with Lavarnway, until Ortiz returns from DL, to enable Salty to DH some. I agree with Nava, over that bum, Carp.



    Nava is certainly beating out Carp, but Lavarnway does not look like a major leaguer..

     

    Linares has hit well although he needs a little patience.  If Ortiz is out and Bradley is delayed for two weeks, he might be an acceptable stopgap...

    Carp makes the team Linares doesn't.

    Forgot a backup infielder [Ciriaco?] one of the [13] pitchers must go? Bard start yr in minors or Sweeney or Carp doesn't make it?

    If the Sox cut Overbay, he will be in pinstripes before the door closes...

    With Morales and Bresow on the dl, yes bard makes the team.  Maybe Sweeney doesnt make the team.  My probably with ciaraco is his approach at the plate is atrocious.  I'd take Holt over him, then again I like his glove and speed of the bench.

    Maybe, but if Bard is pitching great and seems to be bak to his old self, you can't keep him down. Especially with a few guys starting the season on the d.l.  He was one of baseballs best relievers two years ago.
