We are starting it later this year so the deadline is March 8.

-Name the 25-man opening day roster (1 point for each correct player, DL players do not count)

-Name the opening day starting lineup (1 point for each correct player, 1 point for each correct lineup position)

You can change your answer up until the deadline.

Good Luck!

My contribution ...

Position Players
A. McCutchen
Tabata
Jones
Diaz
Overbay
Walker
Cedeno
Alvarez
Snyder
Doumit
Pearce
Bowker
J. Rodriguez

The toughest choice is Pearce vs. Atkins vs. Fields. Pearce is off to a hot start and offers a little more flexibility, so he is my choice.

For now.

Pitchers

Starters
Correia
Maholm
Ohlendorf
McDonald
Morton

Bullpen
Hanrahan
Meek
Resop
Veras
Karstens
Olsen
Beimel

Starting Lineup & Batting Order:
LF Tabata
2B Walker
CF McCutcheon
3B Alvarez
1B Overbay
RF Jones
C Synder
SS Cedeno
P McDonald

Pirates are scheduled to see Dempster in the opener, so the line-up will be heavy left-handed hitting.

My rationale for a couple of my choices: Beimel starts the year on the DL and Moskos wins the left-handed reliever spot. Hurdle likes the versatility and speed of Presley over the power of Bowker, especially with Doumit, Pearce and Diaz/Jones already off the bench.

Shamelessly stealing Bucfan's excellent format, here's my guess:

OF/1B -- G. Jones (L)
OF -- M. Diaz
1B -- L. Overbay (L)
2B -- N. Walker (S)
SS -- R. Cedeno
3B -- P. Alvarez (L)
C -- C. Snyder
C/OF/1B -- R. Doumit (S)
1B/3B/OF -- S. Pearce
UTIL -- C. Wimberly (S)
INF -- J. Rodriguez

Pitchers

Starters

1 -- J. McDonald
2 -- P. Maholm (L)
3 -- K. Correia
4 -- R. Ohlendorf
5 -- C. Morton

Bullpen

CL -- J. Hanrahan
SE -- E. Meek
R -- C. Resop
R -- J. Veras
R -- B. Burres (L)
R -- J. Thomas (L)
LR -- S. Olsen (L)

April 1, 2011 Starting Lineup & Batting Order:

LF J. Tabata
2B N. Walker (S)
CF A. McCutchen
3B P. Alvarez (L)
1B L. Overbay (L)

This one time I kind of miss Russell ... might be able to snag a couple of bonus points by having the pitcher bat 8th, and Cedeno 9th. :D

Thank you both. I've been reading for about a month. Looked like some good smart discussions. Figured I'd jump in.
