My playoff roster preview part I was terribly off. So here it goes....PART II
C-Jorge Posada, Jose Molina
SS-Derek Jeter, Jerry Hairston Jr.
CF-Brett Gardner, Melky Cabrera
That gives us 21 players (9 pitchers, 12 hitters)
So who do the other four spots go to?
Four out of those seven will make it.
DEFINITES FOR ME:
Chad Gaudin for his length and for the fact that he has been great of late.
Francisco Cervelli for the fact that he provides semi-speed, hustle, and a third catcher off the bench.
OTHER TWO CHOICES:
Freddy Guzman for his speed.
Ramiro Pena for his speed, utility fielding, and the fact that he has earned it.
GLARING LEFT OUT PLAYERS: Mark Melancon (no idea why I included him in the last one), Brian Bruney (too risky) Damaso Marte (Coke is the lefty) Eric Hinske (overrated bat, Yankees can use Gardner in center with the extra pinch-runners and use Cabrera as a pinch-hitter)
