Who will make this year's Opening Day Roster? Guess at what the 25 man roster will look like in five weeks. Whoever guesses the most correct players will receive a free year-long membership to Royals Review. If you want you can even be vague like "pitcher acquired off waivers" or "ex-Brave acquired for Clint Robinson."
