Build Me a Bullpen...

Lately I've seen a lot of people forecasting the '08 Yankee bullpen and generally, I disagree. It's impossible, and probably a waste of time, to try to do this. The Yankees used 22 different pitchers out of the bullpen last year, and will use at least that many this year. Anyway, here's my take:
Mariano Rivera
Kyle Farnsworth
LaTroy Hawkins
Joba Chamberlain
Ross Ohlendorf
Scott Patterson
Heath Phillips

There it is, feel free to chime in and tell me why I'm wrong.

your analysis is pretty good
i do agree with the pick of Scott Patterson, he has been off the hook from the minors to the winter league... Phillips if he keeps it up, he also has a much better chance than bruney or britton
personally i'm not much of a proponent of demanding a left specialist... but I do believe Billy Traber should have a pretty good chance
