I checked on whitesox.com, and they still have all the September callups listed under "Active". I was wondering who made it in the bullpen.

They should go with 10 pitchers:

SP: Buehrle, Vazquez, Floyd, Danks
RP: Jenks, Thornton, Linebrink, Dotel, Richard, Carrasco

I'd bet on that as the staff.

15 position players:

C: AJ, Hall
IF: Konerko, Swisher, Ramirez, Cabrera, Uribe, Fields, Bourgeois
OF: Wise, Griffey, Dye, Anderson, Owens
DH: Thome

EDIT: DOH - Getz is done. I thought Fields could still play though (and who's the alternative?).

I think Fields is, too -- he's to have knee surgery after the season ends, it's hard to see how they'd put him on the p/s roster with a bad knee.

I believe the surgery is more of a cleanup type deal, he came in late during one of those twins game last week when Swisher pinch hit for uribe. he's the only back up 3rd basemen, so he almost has to make the roster.

More or less, but it's worth noting Alexei Ramirez can play 3B, as can Bourgeois, although he's much more comfortable at 2B and OF.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think Jason B. can be on the post-season roster since he wasn't on the team until after Sept. 1.

I'm almost positive he can because he's from the Sox organization. Francisco Rodriguez didn't come up until September, 2002, and he pitched in the postseason that year.

Do you know something about Fields that I don't know?

I think they would need to play some games with tCQ and the DL. You can be called up in September, but someone at your position needs to go on the DL.

Josh Fields? Joe Crede?

I don't think you can pass Bourgeois off as a 3rd baseman.

has there been anything about TCQ and a possible return?

I don't have time to find the link but there was a blurb on the Trib website saying he's been hitting off the Tee with his wrist heavily wrapped and will take batting practice on Thursday. He still has a chance of coming back for the ALCS but is definitely not on the ALDS roster.

I think he just has to be a position player, not a player that plays that specific position. Like when Contreras went on the DL, they don't specifically need a SP to replace him, just any pitcher.
