So here it is, the 2009 opening day, 25-man roster. Surprised by anything? how about Gio Gonzalez returning to Sacramento?

I must say, having Sean Gallagher as a long reliever scares me some. He has been very wild all spring. I’d rather have Gonzalez the long-reliever and Gallagher starting in Sacramento.

Also how about Andrew Bailey making the team straight from AA. He’s looked mighty impressive so why not give him a shot.

Bob Geren mentioned that his Saturday lineup will be opening day’s. Here it is for those of you who missed it:

RF Ryan Sweeney, SS Cabrera, 1B Jason Giambi, LF Matt Holliday, 3B Eric Chavez, DH Jack Cust, C Kurt Suzuki, RF Travis Buck and 2B Mark Ellis.

Let me know what you think of the decisions.
