Are there really only 35 players on the 40 man. Trying to see if my count is right.

If so, I'd think they might give a few guys a look, like Regnault, Callaghan, Taijeron, etc...

I would seriously consider skipping Oswalt over Vegas to get 4 or 5 starts.

Don't want to call up too many guys that you're going to have to outright off once the season ends.

Also Familia is about to be added back on soon.

Mostly ones they have to protect anyhow, or are MiL FAs anyhow.

35 but 3 spots are ear-marked for Thor/Familia/Wright

They will likely put 2 guys on the squad once the years over that they need to protect. (Guillorme and Uceta.)

They will then utilize the Reyes/Milone/Cabrera spots for offseason free agents and rule V picks.

Wright???? Who is this mythological character you speak of? The 20 mil dollar ghost.

They have to protect a lot more than those two guys.

Bashlor, Callahan (probably up before the year ends), Bautista. Potentially Crismatt and Blackham as well.

Only if Wright retires. Can't collect insurance money if he's outrighted.

I could also see them trading away guys that aren't DFA worthy but aren't key pieces either. Someone like Gavin Cecchini or Asdrubal Cabrera could make sense. Hansel Robles too.

Also, Reyes is a FA.

I figured the same thing on Wright. You gotta figure he will finally give it up. Even if he comes back I don't think he will last long. Its like he is made of glass.

Robles looks to have great stuff. I would like to hold on to him a little longer, hopefully he gets his head on straight. I would also like to give Cecchini some time in the majors to see what kind of potential he has. Put him at second and leave him there for a couple of weeks.

Don't know why there is no interest in Cabrera. A guy that can play 3rd, 2nd and in a pinch SS and has some pop. Geez, we gave up two decent pitching prospects for Kelly Johnson!

You can't see Cecchini being traded? I'd say it might be greater than 50/50 that he's traded by Opening Day.
