Mariners 2010 25 Man Roster picks

Ok so the 25 man Roster may be set in Wak’s and Jack Z’s minds, but some of us fans are still guessing who will make the 25 man roster when we break camp.Here are my thoughts: First off you have the 9 position players including DH, plus an extra catcher, giving you 10.5 starting pitchers and 7 relievers gives you 12 pitchers together with the position players gives you 22 so far.This  only leaves 3 spots on the bench.I say its going to be Tuiasosopo,Byrnes,and Sweeney.There is still of course some jockeying to do with the rotation in light of Lee’s injury, and the 7th spot in the bullpen looks like it may be Texeira who we grabbed on the rule 5 draft and has had a great spring.

  For the record I’m tired of hearing all the bad-mouthing out in the press about Griffey and Sweeney being to old to play.These guys are gamers and we need leadership.Clubhouse chemistry was a key component of last years team and with all due respect to the sabermetrics crowd, I believe some things in baseball you can’t keep stats on.Chemistry,leadership,clutch hitting, and hot-streaks are intangibles and are what set apart winning teams from a group of excellent individual atheletes wearing the same uniforms.

  So there you have it Sports Fans my picks and I’m sticking to them……..
