My thoughts on the roster is i agree with it for the most part i think Gomez is going to bring alot of excitement to the team so i was glad he made it. I think it will only be a couple weeks before Liriano is back up and Blackburn is back in Rochester. The only change i would of made is have Philip Humber make it instead of Blackburn i think he outpitched him. But all in all its a pretty good roster and it should be fun to get started.

I actually really like the roster. That lineup is very solid one through eight, and we all know what we get with Everett. The starting staff is young, but Liriano should be back in a month or even a few weeks. If it's longer, so be it. Humber is there at AAA ready to go. Bass could make a start. And that bullpen is TOUGH! I'm still a little bit surprised by Tolbert only from the standpoint that by him being this year's Luis Rodriguez, he is now going to be pigeon-holed as a utility infielder, which I believe to be the case anyway, but I'm surprised they would let him sit at the end of the bench.
