Predicting the Full 2012 Postseason Roster for the New York Yankees

The New York Yankees haven't clinched anything yet, but the only thing that could keep them from going to the postseason for the 17th time in the last 18 seasons is some sort of unforeseen natural disaster.

Presently, the Bronx Bombers have a 1.5-game lead over the Baltimore Orioles for first place in the AL East. In the event that they fail to capture the division title, they have the wild card to fall back on as a safety net.

Judging from the way they've been playing lately, however, the Yankees are determined not to fall back on anything. They've won eight of their last 10 games, and they have a 14-8 record thus far in September.

With October baseball a virtual lock for the Yankees, the more interesting question in The Bronx these days is how the team's postseason roster is going to look. Because the Bombers have used a wider array of players this season than they usually do, very few things are set in stone.

If I was in Joe Girardi's shoes, here's who I would pick.
