To me, it seems like he wants the 25-man roster. That's more difficult, especially if you have to take into account injuries.

I left Hairston off of Baltimore's roster because of an injury.

Shut up mod.

I'm not "predicting" anyone right now, because both Sparks and Reynolds have been getting lit up as of late in Spring Training.
