Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Playoff roster set

Felix Pie gets the last spot, edging out everybody's favorite 28-year-old rookie, Micah Hoffpauir. With DeRosa's injury the Cubs want someone who can come into right field late in games and play defense (because that's always a concern when your second baseman gets injured) and Pie has the arm to play right. The Cubs tried out Hoffpauir in right field during the regular season, but he never really seemed suited to playing the outfield.

The starting lineup is still in flux, but Fukudome worked out with the regulars during the first BP session. Mike Fontenot may still get the nod at second base.
