DL: SS Alex Gonzalez, C David Ross and P Matt Belisle.

We've gotta clear 3 spots on the 40 man for Lincoln, Cueto, Bako, Patterson, and Mercker, so that could get interesting. My guesses on who we dump there: Hanigan, Coutlangus, and Drew T. Anderson. Tyler Pelland and Ramon Ramirez also appear to be possibilities. Cutting Stanton and losing Capellan cleared up two spots already.

Rate your level of satisfaction with the roster.

Fun note: I have no idea how to work these fancy new "FanPosts", leading to my work looking moderately retarded. If only pressing enter actually meant something...
