We all each have our own reservations on who we think should be either on the bench, starting in the line-up or pitching, or who we think the last couple spots should go to in the pen, and that is not even mentioning the highly debated order of the line-up :). With that being said, I thought it would be interesting to see who we all would choose to compile our very own 25-man rosters. This list should include the starters, our own line-ups, our bench, and of course the bullpen. Now, with that being said, also included should be the use of the starting pitchers, bullpen situations, and the use of the bench bats.
(Also,if the font is off, I apologize for the inconvenience... :/)
For nothing more than sh*ts and giggles, the rules will contain the following guidelines:
Players can be used who are not on the 40-man roster.
A viable lineup must be constructed
Bench players must atleast include, but are not limited to: 1 back-up catcher, 1 back-up MI/UT, 1 back-up CI/CO, and 1 back-up OF. The players' roles also must be identified.
AT-LEAST Five SP'ers must be identified in order, but a six man rotation is allowed.
Bullpen roles must be identified, and must include at least: ONE LHP, 2 SU men, 1 closer, and 1 LR man
Injured players are eligible, unless they are completely out for the season.
***Final Note*** You also MAY INCLUDE ONLY ONE trade for A MAXIMUM OF TWO roster spots.
A. If a traded player is included, the trade MUST BE REALISTIC, and the details of the trade should be included.
I figured this might be some fun, with the all-star break coming up, and also I know we fans here at TC are very opinionated. ;) ....And I'm on break, and bored so there is that lol...
Anyways, I am interested to see you all's 25-man rosters. I'm interested to see if any of you guys think maybe a suprising player should be called up, or to see possibly what trade you guys might brew up and the use of your own collective pens and benches.
This is really, obviously, just for fun guys, but lets please try ad respect eachother's opinions. Don't just go through this post bashing other people's ideas without posting your own. I hope this can be an enjoyable experience for us all!!
This is not intended to be a rosterbation thread. The purpose of this thread SHOULD go into much greater de more detail than just trade proposals. We are not GM's nor coaches, well professional coaches, but our opinions and ideas should have their own place to be displayed on the construction and use of our beloved Braves 25-man roster, and the use of the players on it.
