NB: Forgot DH. Jose Vidro last year, Mike Sweeney this year.
Last year there were 11 players comprising the bench and bullpen. Of those 11, just two, Mark Lowe and Ryan Rowland-Smith, are on the roster today. On the flipside, of the 14 players that made up the starting nine and the rotation back in 2008, nine return and it would be ten if you count Ichiro.
When was the last time we had any sort of useful bench?
