The paper today made it sound like Grilli had the 24th roster spot and the 6th bullpen spot all wrapped up. Who is the 25th man?

Jaime Burke. according to Ozzie, he wants three catchers on his roster because in his words he will most likely pinch run or pinch hit for the catcher, so he wants to have a back-up to the back-up just in case of an injury or something.

Frank Thomas is going to need a good spring to make the roster this year.

On a serious note, probably Burke because of what Ozzie said.

He also said he wanted 12 pitchers.

Then perhaps Gload won't make the team?

Given that the Scott Schoenweis era is losing momentum quickly, I wanted to split my vote for Cotts and Burke, and kick Schoney to the curb. Since I couldn't do that, I went Cotts. Eventually Schoenweis will be out of the rotation, hopefully before irreparable damage has been done.

Schoney has another start against the Brewers again, and if he has another poor outing, I assume they will go with Cotts. If he performs okay, I'm sure he will have a short leash during the season, meaning a few bad starts at the start of the season, and he will probably become the new lefty specialist. Wunsch I assume would become a general reliever, which is fine since he at least has shown he can get righties out as well.

Three catchers is SUICIDE! Just ask the 2001 Cubs.

My vote goes to "Action Jackson".

Adkins can go to Charlotte, and if Jackson gets rocked in April and May, he can come up in June.

Let's take a chance on Jackson.

We need another pitcher because Shoney had another miserable outing again today.
