    Re: Predict the 'opening day' 25 man roster

    I am sure German, Holder, Heller will all be on the "Scranton Shuttle" all season.

    More than likely. Probably a few others mixed in for good measure too.

    Yes he looked great, which is precisely why he should go to AAA and stay stretched out. He is going to rot in the pen and/or throw garbage innings if he breaks camp with the big club. They are going to need a 6th starter and right now he is their best option by far.

    I'd rather German be the #1 starter in AAA than the #8 reliever rotting in the Yankees pen.

    Exactly, especially since there really aren't any good options behind him currently. Maybe that will change as guys like Adams and Sheffield and even Acevedo get into the season, but right now it is German and Cessa and pray for someone better than Cessa.

    That's a fair take.

    Your updated roster above is pretty close to your original prediction.

    Walker and Torreyes instead of Torres and Andujar. Ellsbury now on DL, and Bird soon to be determined. Warren and Holder instead of German.

    And looking like Austin instead of Bird, Bird on the DL.

    Unfortunately. Was hoping Bird would be injury free to start this season.

    Re: Predict the 'opening day' 25 man roster

    With Adam Warren probably out a few days, I think Domingo German, who'll probably get the first "6th starter" start on April 24th, should take Holder's place on the roster this week. Heck, I'd even vote for Heller or Cessa as the 8th reliever over Holder, who's never impressed me.

    What's wrong with Warren?

    Took a pretty hard hit grounder on his left (?) ankle & immediately came out of yesterday's game. X-rays are negative & he'll probably avoid the DL, but he's probably unable to pitch for a few days.
