Well, Farrell is likely to carry 11 pitchers for the post season which that will leave 14 positional player. The starters will be Ellsbury, Victorino, Pedy, Papi, Napoli, Nava, Salty, Drew, and Middlebrook. Bench will be Gomes, Carp, Synder and probably Bogaerts. Last could go to Berry cuz of Ellsbury. No way that Bradley will be on the post season roster.
Perhaps JBJ will not make the playoff roster, but I'll bet he has a better chance than Snyder. He might have a better chance than Holt as well.
Berry vs JBJ is probably the big positional decision.
The pitching decision will come down to choosing 4 out of these guys:
Doubront, Dempster, Morales, Workman, Britton (Red are the faves)
(The sure 7: Buch, Lest, Peavy, Lack, Uehara, Taz, Bres)
