Rosters For Wild Card Game

The Pirates' 25 man roster for tonight:

Pitchers: Francisco Liriano, Gerrit Cole, Jason Grilli, Mark Melancon, Tony Watson, Justin Wilson, Vin Mazzaro, Bryan Morris and Jeanmar Gomez. (The only surprise was the absence of Kyle Farnsworth, who may appear in later rosters.)

Catchers: Russell Martin, Tony Sanchez and John Buck.

Infielders: Justin Morneau, Neil Walker, Clint Barmes, Perdo Alvarez, Jordy Mercer, Gaby  Sanchez, Garrett Jones and Josh Harrison.

Outfielders: Andrew McCutchen, Starling Marte, Marlon Byrd, Jose Tabata and Travis Snider.

Remember that this roster is only for tonight. If the Bucs go on to the NLDS, they'll prepare a new list that will include at a minimum AJ Burnett and Charlie Morton, taking two of tonight's bench players' spots.

The Reds haven't announced their roster yet; the only real question is whether Billy Hamilton would be on it or not, even though Dusty would be nuts to not add him.

EDIT: Here's the Reds roster -

Pitchers: Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Aroldis Chapman, JJ Hoover, Sam LeCure, Logan Andrusek, Alfredo Simon, Sean Marshall, Manny Parra and Zach Duke. 

Catchers: Ryan Hanigan and Devin Mesoraco.

Infielders: Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, Zack Cozart, Todd Frazier, Cesar Izturis and Jack Hannahan.

Outfielders: Shin-Soo Choo, Jay Bruce, Ryan Ludwick, Chris Heisey, Derrick Robinson and Billy Hamilton.

Dusty went with 10 pitchers and 15 position players.
