Pirate Wild Card Roster

And today's roster:

Pitchers - Gerrit Cole, Antonio Bastardo, Joe Blanton, Arquimedes Caminero, Jared Hughes, Frankie Liriano, Mark Melancon, Joakim Soria & Tony Watson.

Regular bullpen with Frankie as the insurance policy reserve starter

Infielders - Pedro Alvarez, Pedro Florimon, Josh Harrison, Jordy Mercer, Michael Morse, Aramis Ramirez, Sean Rodriguez & Neil Walker.

The usual gang, with Pedro in for a little flexibility and base-running if needed.

Outfielders - Keon Broxton, Starling Marte, Andrew McCutchen, Gregory Polanco & Travis Snider.

The starting three will go all the way; Lunchbox is in to pinch hit and young Keon to run.

Catchers - Fran Cervelli, Elias Diaz & Chris Stewart.

Not sure why Clint likes three; that seems a bit cautious. Diaz holds down a spot that Decker or LaFromboise may have filled.

Next In Line -  OF Jaff Decker, LHP Bobby LaFromboise, 1B Travis Ishikawa & LHP Jeff Locke.

LaFromboise is probably the closest to making the roster, just to allow some match up options for Clint.
