The regular season active rosters in 1987 were 24. My dad framed the official set of baseball cards from that year, and there were 24 cards. I mentioned that in my blog post because Tom Kelly's number is being retired today, and his card was in the 25th spot on that picture: http://puckettspond.com/2012/09/08/tom-kelly-jersey-retired/

Re: John, I'm pretty bullish on the Astros (so long as the view is of more than the 2012 season). If I had to put it in verse, it might go a little something like this...

Behold spring morning grass as it glistens
Pitchers and catchers report
And Brett Myers' girl, who just won't listen
Pitchers and catchers report
Lone gone the apathetic Drayton

The fair-weather fans are in midseason form
Pitchers and catchers report
Worry not, I’ll keep the bandwagon warm
Pitchers and catchers report
The Stribbies cry “Every decision is blech”

Their heads must be thicker than Matt Capps’s neck

Twenty three mil' in a cavernous park
Pitchers and catchers report

Too many hurlers who cannot miss bats

Out of our winter, hope springs anew
When pitchers and catchers report
Here comes the sunshine, there go the blues
As pitchers and catchers report
The skeptics and doubters don't understand,
I'll still be smiling, the haters be damned,
Four words and pure joy that go hand in hand:
"Pitchers and catchers report"

2012-02-16T18:17:55.076-06:00

Actually, I suspect nobody on the fringes of the 25 man roster is entirely safe. They could just go with one backup catcher, Doumit. They could get by with 11 pitchers, especially early in the year with the a lot of open dates. While I think Valencia is largely safe, I doubt if Hughes is, there are several ways and many potential reasons for a backup who can play first or 3rd better than

2012-02-16T13:25:39.026-06:00

When I look at the roster, I don't see a lot of opportunities for bench guys. That could change if Mauer, Morneau or Span aren't healthy. But the only guy in the lineup you might pinch hit for on a regular basis is Revere. And that's assuming he doesn't hit well.

I also agree with the comments that Gray and Maloney are not locks at all. They will need to win spots.

2012-02-16T10:00:58.733-06:00

Doyle adds the additional complication, although I doubt that Gray and Mahoney are sure fire ins. Both are there if the Twins needed more 40-man roster space. The interesting tidbit will be the need for a third catcher. Sadly, if Drew Butera went thru waivers, I'm sure someone would claim him as a backup (Corky Miller, Eli Whiteside are just a couple of no-hitters that continue to find work).

2012-02-16T09:33:18.606-06:00

The fact that the Twins insist on building a roster with 12 pitchers is ABSURD. Especially considering how many position players we have that A) could use days off in an effort to keep them healthy, and B) have batting skills that limit them in certain situations and could benefit by having better/more PH options on the bench.

Assuming the Twins starters perform better than last season

2012-02-16T09:33:01.469-06:00

The option argument for keeping Gray and Maloney is pretty weak. The Twins will likely only keep these two if they are better than the competition this spring. They aren't going to worry about losing them through the waiver process because there is no upside to these guys. They are either better than their competition or they are not. There is certainly enough guys around to fill out the

2012-02-16T09:25:12.551-06:00

Injuries can/will impact this. I could see a guy like Hughes starting on the DL and get a rehab assignment before the Twins have to make a decision on him. Options usually aren't a huge problem and within a few weeks sort themselves out.

2012-02-16T07:32:06.099-06:00

In addition to the out of options situation, you have Terry Doyle who if does not make the team has to be returned to the White Sox. I bet he makes the team before Gray or Maloney, based on talent alone
