Like the kids waiting outside the auditorium hallway to see if their name was posted and they were admitted access to the school's Drama Honors program, the Dodger players were huddled around a piece of paper posted in the locker room earlier today to see if they made the Opening Day roster, after battling it out all spring (not really, but isn't it a nice throwback vision of how things probably were at one time?). Here are your 2009 Opening Day Dodgers (from a Dodgers press release today)!

Yes, that only makes 24. Which means they may still find room for Will Ohman, or perhaps that send-down of Jeff Weaver was fleeting. In any event, here is 96% of the opening day lineup, with one slot outstanding. Congratulations! You have won an all-expenses paid trip to San Diego!
