On the 29th Day, the Roster was Finalized

New, comments

The opening day roster to appear in New York, pending injury, is set in stone at this point. There are only two games left in spring training, so if we do come down with an injury then we are unfortunately unlucky and will need to find another player to fill in.

Yes, there are 27 players on that list and yes, there is a limit of 25 players for a major league roster. Included on this list, though, are Wade Miller, who won't appear until May at the earliest, and Adam Stern who already has a date with the disabled list prepared. That makes it a solid 25. That means Curt Schilling will not be on the opening day disabled list. If he is for some reason, then we can expect to see David McCarty fill his role on the team.

Red Sox. Defending champions. Sunday. Opening day. Almost game time!
