As the off season draws to a close and the date for pitchers and catchers reporting is in sight, i thought a fun inter-active thread would be to look at the 25 man Rays roster that comes north this spring.
The pitching staff is going to have a rotation of five (Price, Shields, Hellickson, Moore and Davis). I see Jeff Niemann as the one being traded. The bullpen will feature Kyle Farnsworth, Joel Peralta, Fernando Rodney, JP Howell, Jake McGee and probably Burke Badenhop. So it appears one possibly two bullpen spots are open.
As for our position players Carlos Pena, Ben Zobrist, Sean Rodriguez, Evan Longoria, Desmond Jennings, BJ Upton, Matt Joyce, Sam Fuld, Luke Scott, Jose Molina and Jeff Keppinger all have secure spots on the roster. That leaves two open spots, one of course being another catcher.
I thought this could be a good thread to throw out some ideas, yes i know it's been done before, as spring training approaches to see how DRB would handle the open spots and the probable trade.
Go ahead, let's rosterbate.
