• The 2009 Opening Day Roster, As It Stands Now

    Posted by on November 7th, 2008 · Comments (5)

    Yes, I know there’s five months until Opening Day. Nonetheless, I thought it would be fun to take a look at what the Yankees Opening Day roster would be – if the season were to open tomorrow – and then look back at this, and update it, as the Yankees make player moves, etc., between now and their actual Opening Day in 2009.

    To that end, if you asked me, at this moment in time, this is the Yankees 2009 Opening Day roster (based on the players they have under contract now):

    Jorge Posada
    Juan Miranda
    Robinson Cano
    Alex Rodriguez
    Derek Jeter
    Hideki Matsui
    Johnny Damon
    Brett Gardner
    Xavier Nady
    Jose Molina
    Melky Cabrera
    Wilson Betemit
    Chris Malec
    Chien-Ming Wang
    Joba Chamberlain
    Darrell Rasner
    Phil Hughes
    Alfredo Aceves
    Mariano Rivera
    Brian Bruney
    Jose Veras
    Edwar Ramirez
    Phil Coke
    David Robertson
    Mark Melancon
