Revised Depth Chart for the Giants

Two changes to the big roster picture:

  1. Dave Roberts is gone
  2. During yesterday's game, Sabean hinted to Jon Miller that an 11-man pitching staff is a possibility.

There should probably be a 2a: Josh Phelps has had a whopping eight at-bats so far, so he's probably not being looked at as a serious contender for a roster spot. Here's a revised guess at the Opening Day roster:

Certain:

Molina
Ishikawa
Renteria
Sandoval
Winn
Rowand
Lewis
Schierholtz

Probable:

Aurilia
Velez
Uribe
Holm
Frandsen

Maybe:

Burriss
Andres "2nd-most-spring-at-bats-on-the-team" Torres
Bowker
Jesus Guzman

Probably not, even if he makes all kinds of sense for this team:

Josh Phelps

Brian Bocock

Brian Bocock

Is this about right, or am I missing something? Are Uribe and Aurilia fighing with each other for one spot? If Sabean was serious about the 11-man staff, who do you pluck from the "maybe" category? The only one who doesn't need more seasoning in the minors is Torres, and even though he had a pretty good season for a speedy CF in AAA, he's an unknown quantity. I hate those. They make it hard to make snap judgments.
