This was officially announced as of 10:49 am CT. No surprises here…it’s nice to see Marquis make it in the bullpen. Besides Howry and possibly Cotts, the bullpen will be the strongest in the playoffs. If Ward whiffs at anything in the NLDS, perhaps we will see Hoff-POWER in the NLCS and World Series when those lineups are set?
Pitchers (11): LHP Neal Cotts, RHP Ryan Dempster, RHP Rich Harden, RHP Bob Howry, LHP Ted Lilly, RHP Carlos Marmol, RHP Jason Marquis, LHP Sean Marshall, RHP Jeff Samardzija, RHP Kerry Wood and RHP Carlos Zambrano
Catchers (2): Henry Blanco and Geovany Soto
Infielders (7): Ronny Cedeno, Mark DeRosa, Mike Fontenot, Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez, Ryan Theriot and Daryle Ward
Outfielders (5): Jim Edmonds, Kosuke Fukudome, Reed Johnson, Felix Pie, Alfonso Soriano
