From the Post -
The Yankees won’t finalize their postseason roster until Sunday, but Joe Torre said it will likely contain 14 players and only 11 pitchers. He acknowledged the roster will be unbalanced and top-heavy with outfielders and first basemen after the return of Gary Sheffield and Hideki Matsui.
Let me guess – the pitchers will be: Wang, Mussina, Johnson, Wright, Lidle, Rivera, Farnsworth, Proctor, Bruney, Villone and Myers.
This means Rasner, Karstens, and Dotel are out – and after last night, it makes sense to keep off Rasner.
The position players will be Posada, Fasano, Giambi, Cano, Jeter, Rodriguez, Cabrera, Damon, Abreu, Williams, Matsui, Sheffield and Cairo – for sure. This leaves one spot open – to be filled from the following: Wilson, Green, Phillips, and Guiel.
Torre will probably take Phillips – based on what you hear. It’s a shame – because Guiel is the more useful player.
