Roster Set, Pettitte To DL

The roster is set, and my previous post's discussion has become a reality as Andy Pettitte has been placed on the disabled list and eligible to return Saturday.

Without further adieu, your 2008 New York Yankees:
Johnny Damon LF
Derek Jeter SS
Bobby Abreu RF
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Jason Giambi 1B
Jorge Posada C
Hideki Matsui DH
Robinson Cano 2B
Melky Cabrera CF

Jose Molina C
Shelley Duncan IF/OF
Morgan Ensberg IF
Wilson Betemit IF

Chien-Ming Wang
Mike Mussina
Phil Hughes
Ian Kennedy

Mariano Rivera
Joba Chamberlain
Kyle Farnsworth
LaTroy Hawkins
Billy Traber
Ross Ohlendorf
Jon Albaladejo
Brian Bruney
The Yankees will not have a long man to begin the season, but the extra relief spot during Pettitte's absence makes up for it. Joe Girardi says there will be a longman reliever in the Yankees bullpen at some point this season - probably sooner than later.
