    might be fun...

    you can list your 25 if you like, but what i'm most interested in is hearing how people believe Terry will fashion the pitching staff.... 11 pitchers? 12? does Wakefield make it? How many lefties?

    I feel good about this postseason... I only wish Dice-K got a couple starts off... He's running out of gas, IMO...

    Let's see, I'll probably revise this with some more thought, but...

    MY 25:

    Pitchers (11)

    Rotation: (4*)

    Beckett
    DiceK
    Schill
    *Wake (depending on scheduling, may not be used as starter, just long relief in pen)

    Pen: (7)

    Paps
    Oki
    Gagne
    Delcarmen
    Timlin
    Tavarez
    Corey

    I think the last spot is a toss-up between Lopez, Corey, Lester & Snyder. To be honest, I don't like Lopez all that much, for a LOOGY, lefties have a .296 BA and a .814 OPS off of him. I'd love to see Lester on there, but I just don't see them doing it.

    So, to me, it's a toss-up between Snyder and Corey. I don't trust either too much, but Corey has been more effectively lately. We don't need another long man (Snyder) with both Tavarez and Wake on the roster.

    Position players (14):

    1. Pedroia
    2. Youk
    3. Ortiz
    4. Manny
    5. Lowell
    6. Drew
    7. Tek
    8. Crisp
    9. Lugo

    Bench:

    Mirabelli
    Ellsbury
    Cora
    Kielty
    Hinske

    No Julian, No Wake, No Corey, but 2 backup catchers and a LOOGY who can't get out lefties. Lester over Wakefield makes sense since Wake just got a cortisone shot and they don't want to rush him, and Lopez being left off was a pipe dream, but Cash over Tavarez doesn't make any sense.
