The speculation that the highest paid player on the team would make the World Series roster proved false Wednesday.

Manager Bruch Buchy's World Series roster is now official and it does not include Barry Zito.  Buchy is sticking with the team that got him this far name by name.

Pitchers (11)

  • Jeremy Affeldt
  • Madison Bumgarner
  • Matt Cain
  • Santiago Casilla
  • Tim Lincecum
  • Javier Lopez
  • Guillermo Mota
  • Ramon Ramirez
  • Sergio Romo
  • Jonathan Sanchez
  • Brian Wilson

Catchers (2)

  • Buster Posey
  • Eli Whiteside

Infielders (7)

  • Mike Fontenot
  • Aubrey Huff
  • Travis Ishikawa
  • Edgar Renteria
  • Freddy Sanchez
  • Pablo Sandoval
  • Juan Uribe

Outfielders (5)

  • Pat Burrell
  • Cody Ross
  • Aaron Rowand
  • Nate Schierholtz
  • Andres Torres

Barry Zito worked out with the team on Monday at AT&T Park. Sports columnist Henry Sholeman reported Zito even stayed after the practice was over to make more pitches from the mounda and Buchy watched.  That, plus his veteran status, not to mention his pay check had some thinking that he had a shot at the World Series.

In the end, it didn't happen. Zito and his $18 million salary will remain a very highly paid cheerleader with great seats.
