Some Questions About the 25-man Roster

Some folks here at BCB have discussed at length possible starting lineups and the bullpen/closer situations; however, we have yet to speculate on the potential 25-man roster with which the Cubs will break camp in 2007.

The following are a few questions about the roster:

  1. Should the Cubs start the year with a 4-man rotation and, if so, then which "fifth starter" goes to the bullpen?
  2. Should the Cubs go with 14 position players and 11 pitchers or 13 and 12?  (This is related to the above question, of course).
  3. How many of the "young pitchers" from last year have a shot at making the final cuts?
  4. Why have the Cubs not designated Roberto Novoa for assignment yet?
  5. What happens to Michael Wuertz, because right now, I see him as the 13th pitcher when a maxium of 12 should be allowed, as shown here:
Zambrano, Lilly, Prior, Hill, Marquis, Miller, Cotts, Dempster, Eyre, Howry, Ohman, Wood

This is enough, at least for now.  Please let me know what you think.  Anyone have any answers here or other questions?
