Updated NL West Rosters
2003-12-15 03:15
by Jon Weisman
Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Remember, these are rosters laid out as if the season started today, not predictions.

Noteworthy changes:

  • Based on defensive value, I've put Shawn Green in left field for the Dodgers and Juan Encarnacion in right.
  • I've changed the Rockies' last bench slot into a slot for a 12th pitcher, given their lack of depth in position players and their likely roster construction.
  • I've got Garrett Atkins at second base for the Rockies, even though he is a third baseman. Colorado signed Vinny Castilla to play third but cleared out its middle infield. The Rockies' current starting shortstop, Clint Barmes, had an OPS of .710 at Class AAA Colorado Springs last season.
  • Colorado released former Dodger farmboy Luke Allen.
  • Just in passing, the Padres have built a lot of bullpen depth.

Right now, I would say that the NL West is the second-weakest division in baseball, behind only the American League Central.
