Here are my picks for the post-season roster:
1. Bullpen: Storen, Roark, Clippard, Barrett, Stammen, Detwiler, Thornton, Blevins. Why Blevins? Because he has been very effective against lefties (but NOT Righties!).
2. Bench: R-Zimm, Frandsen, Lobaton, Espinosa, Schierholtz. Why Schierholtz? Because he is a good backup outfielder and has more experience than Michael Taylor. And he’s a better overall player than Hairston.

Yeah, it does seem different this time. They have more of a confidence about them, especially since August, like you say. There will undoubtedly be road bumps but it sure will be fun to watch. Bring on the playoffs already!!
I agree – unless someone in the front office reminds Matt of how much they are paying him, Mr “Untuck” will not be in the bull pen.
