Giants-Braves 2010 NLDS: Giants Announce NLDS Postseason Roster

The San Francisco Giants announced their 25-man roster for the National League Divisional Series and there are certainly some surprises. Barry Zito is not on the roster which is not a surprise. However, Jose Guillen is also off the roster (like in place of Nate Schierholtz) and I do find that a bit surprising.

Guillen is apparently being left off due to a sore neck. This was a man who once played a month for the Oakland A’s with a broken bone in his hand in an effort to get them to the postseason. That was also several years ago so I guess age is catching up wtih Guillen. In 42 games for the Giants this season he hit .266 but he had some of the biggest hits imaginable. Henry Schulman also points to his proclivity for hitting ground balls, which would be huge against the likes of Derek Lowe and Tim Hudson. So, at the end of the day I suppose it makes some sense.

Head on over to McCovey Chronicles to discuss the team’s postseason roster.
