There isn't much drama in making these selections thanks to recent injury developments. But since the rosters have to be set for Opening Day by 5PM today, I might as well submit the 25 players I think Joe will end up taking. I'm sure he's been waiting for me to give him a few last-minute pointers anyway. Probably not fair of me to keep him waiting any longer.
- Infielders: Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Eric Chavez, Eduardo Nunez
- Outfielders: Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson, Brett Gardner, Andruw Jones, Raul Ibanez
- Catchers: Russell Martin, Francisco Cervelli
- Starting Pitchers: CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Phil Hughes, Ivan Nova, Freddy Garcia
- Relief Pitchers: Mariano Rivera, David Robertson, Rafael Soriano, Boone Logan, Cory Wade, Clay Rapada, D.J. Mitchell
There you have it. If I'm wrong, everybody gets one of the free AB4AR t-shirts that still don't exist.
