Getting Down to 25
I’m trying to figure out what the Giants are going to do with all of these infielders. Let’s look at the expected 25 and see who’s on the bubble.
The 5 Starting Pitchers are fairly obvious: Bum, Cueto, Moore, Smarge, Cain.
Relievers: Melancon, Law, Strickland, Kontos, Smith, Okert, and then either Oshich or Blach. If they carry both that would be 13 total pitchers which is probably 1 more than they carry but maybe what they decide to start with on Opening Day.
Catchers: Buster and Hundy (that’s gotta be his nickname, right?)
Outfielders: Pence, Span, Parker and Gorky’s. (This is just assuming they go 4 OF’s, it may not be the last 2 guys).
So that’s 19 guys with 6 spots left for the infield. Around the horn we go Belt, Panik, Craw and The great and all-knowing and all-powerful Nunie.
That leaves 2 spots left for Gillaspie (who I have to believe is a lock), Rollins, Hill and Specs….
Anyone see this any differently?
I don’t see how there is any way Specs makes this roster.
