My ALDS Roster

Position Players (14)
Jorge Posada C
Francisco Cervelli C
Mark Teixeira 1B
Robinson Cano 2B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Derek Jeter SS
Brett Gardner OF
Curtis Granderson OF
Nick Swisher OF
Marcus Thames OF/DH
Lance Berkman DH
Austin Kearns OF
Eduardo Nunez INF
Ramiro Pena INF or Greg Golson OF -- Not sure about this one, and not really sure it matters anyway. They both have speed and can both play defense, it just depends on what the Yankees feel they need more: another outfielder or infielder.

Starting Pitchers (3)
CC Sabathia
Andy Pettitte
Phil Hughes

Bullpen (8)
Mariano Rivera
Joba Chamberlain
Kerry Wood
David Robertson
Boone Logan
Royce Ring
Ivan Nova
Sergio Mitre

- I think the combination of Vazquez's start last night and Mitre's relief appearance earned him that final spot.

- AJ Burnett belongs nowhere near the rotation until they actually need a 4th starter.

- Bringing Royce Ring gives the Yankees two lefties, which can always be valuable in a short series.

What are your thoughts and predictions?
