Your 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates

Since the Pirates will be playing games next season as well, let's take a look at the kind of roster we'll be seeing on Opening Day, as of now:

1. CF Andrew McCutchen

2. LF Jose Tabata

3. 2B Neil Walker

4. 3B Pedro Alvarez

5. 1B Lyle Overbay

6. RF Garrett Jones/Matt Diaz

7. C Chris Snyder

8. SS Ronny Cedeno

Against left-handed pitching, I'd look for Matt Diaz to hit 5th and Overbay 6th.

OF Matt Diaz/Garrett Jones

2B/SS Josh Rodriguez

C/Util Ryan Doumit

1B/OF <Steve Pearce, John Bowker, or Alex Presley>

1B/3B <incomplete>

SP James McDonald

SP Ross Ohlendorf

SP Paul Maholm

SP Kevin Correia

SP Scott Olsen

***

CL Evan Meek

SU Joel Hanrahan

RP Wil Ledezma

RP Chris Resop

LR Jeff Karstens

RP <left-handed reliever>

RP <wildcard>

I disagree with some of the Pirates' choices for some of the roles, but as it stands now, this will likely be fairly close to the initial offering for the 2011 season.
