Dodgers Announce NLDS Roster

Per Dodger Insider...
Starting pitchers (4): Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Dan Haren

Relief pitchers (8): Pedro Baez, Scott Elbert, Carlos Frias, J.P. Howell, Brandon League, Kenley Jansen, Brian Wilson, Jamey Wright

Starting lineup (8): A.J. Ellis, Adrian Gonzalez, Dee Gordon, Hanley Ramirez, Juan Uribe, Carl Crawford, Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp

Reserves (5): Drew Butera, Andre Ethier, Miguel Rojas, Justin Turner, Scott Van Slyke
They're going with bullpen quantity to address the bullpen quality issue. No Joc Pederson (not surprising at all). No Darwin Barney (I wanted him for slick late-inning defense). No Paco Rodriguez, which is surprising. Scott Elbert gets the call as the second lefty. Best of all, no Chris Perez, Roberto Hernandez, or Kevin Correia. Pedro "Don't Call Me Joan" Baez and Carlos "Chuckie Freeze" Frias will see their first postseason action.

Now, let's go bird hunting!

Swap out Frias for DB, and that's what I would have done...oh yeah, and run over Wilson and League with a car so we'd have to go buy some real talent.
