The Halos have finalized their opening day roster. Biggest surprise, IMHO, is Jason Bulger. The guy had a fairly middling spring, but I guess they decided to go with him rather than add another guy to the 40-man, which probably would have been Nick Adenhart. Plus, this way, Adenhart gets to pitch every 5th day, which is important for his continued development.
We also see that Darren O'Day and Rich Thompson made the team; no real surprise there, as they both had solid springs. During the broadcast tonight, it was intimated that Shields may be back off the DL as early as the home opener, so one of those three may be headed back to SLC within the week. Also, Bootcheck is supposedly ready to start throwing again, and could be back before the end of April as well.
I'm disappointed that Kendry Morales didn't make the team; I really don't think Robb Quinlan is better, except that Quinlan provides more defensive versatility, and I guess that's important. As expected with the departure of Nathan Haynes, Reggie Willits made the team.
