Kyle Kendrick, Miguel Cairo, and Antonio Bastardo are a couple of the surprise inclusions. Surprise omissions include Tyler Walker, Clay Condrey, and Eric Bruntlett.
With that bit of info, it's looking like the roster shapes up like this:
My gut reaction? I applaud the organization for placing faith in Bastardo, since a second lefty will almost surely be necessary against the lefty-heavy lineup the Rockies have. I'm also pleasantly surprised by the exclusion of Bruntlett -- his wet noodle bat (171/.224/.238) would have been a liability off the bench, a fact that no amount of value as a pinch runner or utilityman could camouflage. I'm lukewarm on the inclusion of Kendrick in place of Walker -- Walker misses more bats and isn't quite as susceptible to left-handed hitters -- and I generally think keeping 12 pitchers on the postseason roster is a waste, but all things considered, I think the Phils have done a nice job here.
What do you guys think?
