As expected, the Phillies will carry 11 pitchers into the NLCS, with Kyle Kendrick winning back a spot on the 25-man roster. Kendrick will fill a longman role held by Joe Blanton in the previous round; Blanton is expected to start Game 4. The move was bad news for Greg Dobbs, who, despite to health of Placido Polanco at third, was left off the roster. Domonic Brown will reportedly stay on for speed and extra power. Beerleaguer: The Phils are taking a chance with bringing only one extra infielder, however, Dobbs' skills have rapidly dwindled and Brown is a dynamic asset. Adding Kendrick for the seven-game series was the right call.
