Predicting Augusta's Opening Day roster - what's your guess?

A lot more info on where players are currently assigned is trickling in from sources like Joe Ritzo and our SJ/Fresno Superfans (kdl and sfgiantsgirl), so this exercise is not quite as challenging as it would have been last week. That being said, just because a player is currently playing with one spring training squad it doesn't mean he's locked in there for OD. Augusta could have a very young and exciting team that will make a lot of youthful errors, or it could have a mostly boring team of older college filler prospects and a few younger longshots with upsides. My guess is that it will be somewhere in between, but with too much of an emphasis on older roster filler types. On a bright note, I think that Augusta bullpen should be stacked with upside talent and power arms no matter what happens with the other areas of the roster.

Here's my prediction for the Augusta OD 25-man roster:
C: Trevor Brown
1B: Joey Rapp
2B: Alberto Robles
3B: Mitch Delfino
SS: Travious Relaford
LF: Chuckie Jones
CF: Tyler Hollick
RF: Andrew Cain
DH: RafRod
UT: Polonious Magnus, Kentrell Hill, Gabriel Cornier

SP: Joan Gregorio
SP: Ty Blach
SP: Kendry Flores
SP: Joe Kurrasch
SP: Joe Biagini
SP: Jason Forjet

RP: Ian Gardeck
RP: Steve Okert
RP: Tyler Mizenko
RP: EJ Encinosa
RP: Stephen Johnson
RP: Luis Rojas
RP: Chris Johnson

Also on the extended roster: Ray Black, Stephen Branca, Kevin Couture, Matt Duffy, Miguel Ferrer, Ryan Jones, Armando Paniagua, Jeff Soptic, Ben Turner, Scotty Walker
