Here's the Dodgers Roster for the 2014 NLDS

We finally know who'll be roaming the Dodger dugout for this NLDS.  Just a moment ago the Dodgers released their 25-man roster.  Check it out below.

Pitchers (12) 
LHP Clayton Kershaw
RHP Zack Greinke
LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu
RHP Dan Haren

RHP Pedro Baez   
LHP Scott Elbert
RHP Carlos Frias
RHP Brandon League
RHP Brian Wilson
RHP Jamey Wright
LHP J.P. Howell
RHP Kenley Jansen

Position Players (13)
C A.J. Ellis
1B Adrian Gonzalez
2B Dee Gordon
SS Hanley Ramirez
3B Juan Uribe
OF Carl Crawford
OF Yasiel Puig
OF Matt Kemp

C Drew Butera
IF Justin Turner
IF Miguel Rojas
IF/OF Scott Van Slyke
OF Andre Ethier

The only surprises to speak of is in the relief staff.  Pedro Baez, Carlos Frias and Scott Elbert make the team over Chris Perez, Paco Rodriguez, Paul Maholm, Roberto Hernandez and Kevin Correia - and thank goodness for that.  Perez has been a blight all season long, and the long-guys are just not that good.  I am a little surprised that Paco was passed over for Elbert; considering that Elbert had only recently come back from the DL and pitched in just seven games.

Furthermore, they decide to go with an extra arm in the bullpen over an extra bat/defensive replacement on the bench.  Many folks wondered if Darwin Barney would make the squad due to his strong September, but I think the Dodgers figured that if they don't carry a long-man in the 'pen then they should have an extra arm instead.  If a long-man is needed for a game you should expect Haren to take that role (or maybe Butera comes out to pitch-LOL).

Anyway, here's your Dodger team.  Overall, I can't complain.
