I want to throw out the possibility that Andre Ethier might not be 100% for the first round of the playoffs and could possibly sit, making space for Hairston, but I prefer Scott Van Slyke. I have no inside info on that, but it could happen. Probably not, but you have to consider it. I am assuming Andre will be in the lineup, so here is my 25-man roster:
- Van Slyke
A couple of things jump out:
- No Jerry Hairston, Jr. – he has sucked for quite some time and SVS delivers power off the bench
- Dee Gordon is not trusted to field bt Dodger brass – it’s too much to keep a guy to just pinch run.
- Marmol deserves it ahead of League, but I think the Dodgers need a long-man in case a game gets out of hand. Volquez is that guy! Fife has been decidedly bad of late and Capuano is still hurt.
That’s the roster. Am I wrong?
