Reds NLDS roster & Game One lineup

Collect all 25.

I don't think there are really an surprises, but here it is anyway. I thought Leake might be a little more useful, given his ability to pinch-hit and go long in an emergency extra inning situation, but Hoover is fully deserving of a seat in the bullpen.

Cairo and Valdez both made it, which isn't really news. I'm way over it, especially with the different logic in the playoffs. You use your best players as much as you can. Cairo and Valdez are there for moral support as much as anything else.

Leave the roster-baiting behind, It's almost PLAYOFF TIME.
