The Playoff Roster: Take Two

Not much has changed since my first prediction:

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
Greg Golson OF --- gets the nod over Pena, although once again this could go either way and I don't think it would hurt or matter at all.

Starting Pitchers (3)
CC Sabathia
Andy Pettitte
Phil Hughes

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

A.J. Burnett --- Probably doesn't deserve to be here, but it comes down to him, Nova, Gaudin or Vazquez. You might as well go with the guy who will need to pitch in the ALCS (if the Yanks make it).

Ivan Nova pitched himself off the roster with that shaky relief appearance in Boston. It may not be fair to judge him based on one appearance, but it was his chance to prove himself and he didn't come through.

Your thoughts?
