I thought it would be fun for everyone to put what they think the Cubs 25 man roster wll look like if they make the playoffs. Including trades, callups, etc...

Lineup

1. Theriot 2B
2. Fukudome RF
3. Lee 1B
4. Ramirez 3B
5. Byrd CF
6. Soriano LF
7. Soto C
8. Castro SS

Bench
Nady
Fontenot
Colvin
Hill
Baker
Tracy

Starters

Dempster
Wells
Zambrano
Lily


Bullpen
Marmol
Caridad
Cashner
Jackson
Grabow
Marshall
Gorzelany

My guess is that Silva comes back down to earth, and Caridad returns a much better pitcher. When these two things happen, Zambrano is moved back to the rotation and Silva become the long man, but does not make the playoff roster.

Castro spends June and July in Iowa before getting called up in August.

Hendry tries to trade for a veteran setup man, but the price is too steep for the Heath Bell types, and not too many teams are sellers. Caridad has proven himself, plus Guzman could be back next year. So instead he adds Andrew Cashner and Jay Jackson to the pen, and decides to ride the hot hand in the playoffs.

Give me your guesses.

Why do you still have Theriot? We should trade him straight up for Eckstein.

Padres wanted him and Fuld. The scrap ratio was too far in their favor. I couldn't justify it. I know Eckstein hits with a pixie dust filled fairy wand, but it's not worth it.

You went about it all wrong...

2010, Lilly perfects cloning/gene splicing (research was being done to feed his soul before games)
2011 Lilly clones Pujols (spliced with Cliff Lees pitching) in secret... 25 perfect copies
2012 Chicago Cubs win world series on backs of 14 man roster of Pujolee clones
12-21-2012... world ends

eidt: forgot to mention that the other 11 players were sacrificed prior to game one of the NLDS... Pujolees apparently share Lilly's blood lust

What, no Koyie Hill to round it all out?

I pity the fool.
