More on the roster

I was just reminded that the Dodgers are required only TO SUMBIT A 25-MAN ROSTER BY NOON TOMORROW. That doesn’t mean it has to be THE 25-man roster. That still leaves another 28 hours before they play their season opener, and they can make unlimited roster moves during that time. I have been led to believe that WILL happen. So whatever 25-man roster is put in place tomorrow morning is only a rough draft, so to speak. We aren’t really going to know who is on this team until well into the day on Monday. The remaining decisions, as I understand it, are all contingent on how many 40-man spots can be cleared. If I had to guess, and this is only a guess, that probably means they are trying to find a way to get Belisario and Castro, and possibly others, onto the team. I also have been told that barring anything unforeseen (like a freak injury such as slipping in the shower) Doug Mientkiewicz has made the club.

    Trade winds are probably blowin’.

  • Please don’t tell me this means Sturtze is on the team.

  • Brooklyn Dodger

    I’m guessing that THH is correct. And those winds will likely keep blowing past Monday.

  • Tony Jackson

    I have also been told that no trade winds are blowin’. This has to do only with people currently in the organization, some of whom may not be for much longer if they are claimed off waivers.

    Thanks Tony… do you know whatever happened to Estes? Is he going to Triple A with Stults and Weaver? He was mentioned a lot but recently nada. Didn’t see where Sturtze ended up either… don’t see any other teams with all this drama and dragging on regarding their rosters… pick a way and go with it already.
