2009-11-02 17:00:002009 WS Game FiveReally a shame, the fans getting on J.C. Romero like this, out of the blue. The guy's not even active. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game One"Bill (New Mexico): Are you folks surprised that Manuel didn't DH Howard and let someone play first who can field the position?"

That player doesn't exist on this roster. Well, Eric Bruntlett, but if he wanted to do that he would have done it with Burrell.

It's kind of funny watching everyone run across the limitations of this roster. Wait until J.C. Romero has to face Evan Longoria.
