Opening night roster announced

This is anticlimactic after a final week of spring training loaded with decisions and human drama, but here is the Phillies’ 25-man roster to begin the season.

Pitchers: Right-handers Joe Blanton, Clay Condrey, Chad Durbin, Brad Lidge, Ryan Madson, Brett Myers and Chan Ho Park and left-handers Scott Eyre, Cole Hamels, J.A. Happ, Jamie Moyer and Jack Taschner. Catchers: Chris Coste and Carlos Ruiz. Infielders: Eric Bruntlett, Cairo, Greg Dobbs, Pedro Feliz, Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley. Outfielders: Raul Ibanez, Matt Stairs, Shane Victorino and Jayson Werth.
