On paper this team looks terrible. How can Gardy real feel confident? I just don't think we can count on guys like Gibson, Harden and Pelfrey. Sure they could hold up but it's a gamble to say the least. Worley and Diamond both had surgery's this off season as well. On the bright side there looks to be a lot of strong candidates for the bullpen.

Oops, forgot about Duensing and Burnett. Duensing instead of Roenicke. Don't know what to do about Burnett. If he has options, he's on the Rochester shuttle.

Good list cmath, although you might have to sub out Diamond as it sounds like he won't be ready. I'd also bet a fair sum of money that Butera is on the OD roster.
Burnett I believe has one option left since he didn't use any last year. Will be interesting to see how they handle him.

You only listed 23 guys in the initial list. You added Burnett and Duensing, took off Roenicke. I would also add Butera.
There is also about a 0% chance that Gibson starts in the bullpen.

drjim--Ryan said they were considering that as one way to manage his innings load this year.
