Rookies, post season roster and contracts discussed today

A lot was discussed this past hour about the post season roster and beyond.

This includes the fate of the Phillies September call-ups, the size of the post season roster and a few off season moves.

Relivers Joe Savery and Justin De Fratus will go to Clearwater when playoffs begin to keep throwing just in case. They will be joined by Domonic Brown, who will not be an option for the post season roster.

Reliever Michael Schwimer and outfield Brandon Moss will be sent home at the end of the regular season.

In regards to the post season roster, the Phils ar flirting with the idea of carrying 11 pitchers. That will include the four starters, Ryan Madson, Antonio Bastardo, Brad Lidge, Michael Stutes and Vance Worley. Kyle Kendrick, Joe Blanton and David Herndon will battle for the 10th and optional 11th pitching spot.

By carrying 14 hitters, they will have eight starters, a back-up catcher and five bench players for hitting, running and fielding.

And in some future news, the Phillies have extended contract offers to every single coaching position for next season. A 99-win season would do that.
