40 Players in 40 Days: The First Ten

on .

Now that we've gotten through our first ten player profiles of the guys on the Braves' 40-man roster (actually, you're going to get 42 profiles, what with Jorge Campillo and Jordan Schafer on the 60-day DL!), let's take a look at what we've projected for the roster as a whole.  I'm going to group these guys into categories, and we'd love to hear in the comments if you would move guys around.  I've listed the categories in terms of their potential to make the Opening Day roster, and I'm sticking to my own conclusions here (with plenty of room to move guys between categories after discussion).  As a final disclaimer, I don't view this as a discussion of what's most likely to happen; rather, we are going to what we'd like to see.

Rotation: Tim Hudson, Kenshin Kawakami, Derek Lowe

Controversial trade candidate: Jair Jurrjens [note: to those who think it's laughable to stick Jurrjens here, I hear you and you have a valid argument.  Just please let me know in the comments how you would rearrange things to make room for him.  I do think at least one player has to be in this controversial trade category.]

In the bullpen if fully recovered from injury: Jorge Campillo, Buddy Carlyle (unless arb-eligible)

Riding the bus back and forth to Gwinnett (hopefully): Manny Acosta, Boone Logan

Fearing for his roster life: Stephen Marek
