Opening day roster set tonight (hopefully)

The Dodgers don’t HAVE to set their roster until 9 a.m. tomorrow morning, but my guess is it will happen right after the game tonight, because the team is leaving for Milwaukee around 10 tomorrow morning. Can’t imagine they would leave anything unresolved until then. In reality, there really is only one more decision to be made, that being whether to DL Rafael Furcal retroactive to March 21 so Wilson Valdez doesn’t have to be waived, at least not before Furcal comes off the DL on Friday. The club still has to purchase the contracts of Rudy Seanez and Larry Bigbie, but those moves are formalities. There is one 40-man spot already open, and the club will open another by putting Jason Repko on the 60-day DL. Players on the 60-day don’t count against the 40-man limit. Players on the 15-day do. I’ll get this stuff on the blog as soon as I know it. Forty-three hours and 35 minutes to first pitch.
