Checking in on the 25

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Just checking in on where we stand with the Dodger Top 25:

Starting pitchers (5): Brad Penny, Jeff Weaver, Kazuhisa Ishii, Edwin Jackson, Elmer Dessens
Relievers (6): Eric Gagne, Yhency Brazoban, Duaner Sanchez, Giovanni Carrara, Scott Stewart, D.J. Houlton
Catchers (2): Dave Ross, Mike Rose
Infielders (6): Hee Seop Choi, Jeff Kent, Cesar Izturis, Alex Cora, Antonio Perez, Olmedo Saenz
Outfielders (6): Shawn Green, Milton Bradley, Jayson Werth, Ricky Ledee, Jason Grabowski, Cody Ross

Lurking: Wilson Alvarez, Brent Mayne, Tom Wilson, Odalis Perez, Adrian Beltre, Henri Stanley, Chin-Feng Chen, Brian Myrow and others.
Disabled list: Darren Dreifort

Believe me, no one is suggesting the above 25-man roster is the final 25-man roster.

Jose Hernandez signed a one-year contract with Cleveland on Monday for $1.8 million. Reasonable enough. So where were the Dodgers?

Well, believe it or not, the Dodger roster is filling pretty fast. Despite the lack of quality in some prominent spots, there is quantity overall. With Kent coming in and pushing Cora to the reserves, Saenz already locked in on a deal for 2005 and Perez a player on the upswing, the infield is fairly full. That doesn't mean you couldn't have shoehorned the versatile Hernandez in a bench slot. He might have been a good keeper. But as I wrote before, it's too soon to judge the decision.
