Fresh off the presses, here's the 2010 Opening Day Thunder roster, I think

The Thunder just sent out what they're calling the 2010 Player List, although the pdf is entitled "roster." Here's what they have:

Cory Arbiso
Wilkins Arias
Jeremy Bleich
Noel Castillo
Wilkin De La Rosa
Grant Duff
Christian Garcia
D.J. Mitchell
Lance Pendleton
David Phelps
Ryan Pope
Josh Schmidt
Eric Wordekemper
Jose Gil
Austin Romine
Brandon Laird
Luis Nunez
David Adams
Kevin Smith
Justin Snyder
Neall French
Marcos Vechionacci
Dan Brewer
Edwar Gonzalez
Austin Krum
Damon Sublett

Of course, there is one major problem here: There are 26 players, two more than the Eastern League's limit. My bet is that Neall French and one other player hit the DL almost immediately. Also, it pains me to say what all of you can plainly see, but there is no Pat Venditte on this roster. It looks like Thunder fans will have to wait to see the switch-pitcher in action.

He's there, will be in the bullpen. I just missed him when transcribing the roster. My bad.

i have to believe some of these players are on a short leash this year. in fact, i expect arbiso, duff, schmidt, wordekemper, gonzalez, snyder, and vechionacci to be moved up or out by 6/1.

The players will not be on the DL, but on the Staten Island roster, even though they will train with Trenton. The DL won't be used until the short season leagues start
