Palm Beach Cardinals 2009 opening roster


Well, I had the 2009 Palm Beach opening roster pretty close to accurate in my projection this morning. Now, sooner than expected, I have the real thing.

All 12 position players are the same as forecast previously. The final 13 pitchers come from the group of 16 candidates from earlier minus Eddie Degerman, put on the disabled list, Mark McCormick, likely returning to Springfield when ready and Jared Bradford.
