Opening Day Roster Density

Oh man. It's Opening Day. The real one. When the Reds begin. Like it should be.

Now. Let's play a game of "Do I have any cards of the Reds Opening Day 25-man roster?" With all our mid/off-season trades, our young roster, and our rash of injuries, I'm dubious the current team being trotted out at GABP is highly dense in my collection. Let us see.

Go Reds.


  1. What a strange trip it's been for Straily the past week - I was about to say, I think he's with the Padres, but indeed he is a Red.

  2. After the last few years of the Cubs rebuild, I can definitely feel where you're coming from here. The roster Jenga is tough to keep up with sometimes.
