Optimal 25-man Playoff Roster

So, the Halos are getting healthy - finally - and most likely heading to the playoffs.  My challenge to you is this:

Construct the optimal 25-man playoff roster.  How many pitchers do you carry?  What does your bench look like?  What is the starting rotation and how do you construct your lineup against lefties and righties?  Are they different?  

Think this through and give me your thoughts....

Since I started this madness, here is my optimal 25-man roster...

I went with a 10 man pitching staff and 15 position players.

My lineup is this:

Vs. RH starter

Figgins (3B)
Cabrera (SS)
Vlad (RF)
G.A. (LF)
Morales (DH)
Kotchman (1B)
Matthews (CF)
Kendrick (2B)
Napoli (C)

Vs. LH starter

Willits(LF)
Cabrera (SS)
Kendrick (2B)
Vlad (RF)
Matthews (CF)
Kotchman (1B)
Morales (DH)
Napoli (C)
Figgins (3B)

Rotation:

Escobar
Lackey
Weaver
Saunders

Bullpen:

K-Rod
Shields
Speier
Bootcheck
Oliver
Moseley

Bench:

Izturis (INF)
Mathis (C)
Rivera (OF)
Willits (OF)
Quinlan (INF/OF)
Wood (3B, SS)

The only caveat for me here is if Rivera is healthy.  If he isn't ready to run at full tilt I would replace him with Terry Evans.
