Rosters expand Tuesday and the Pirates are certain to make some moves.  Space is tight, though, with just one opening on the 40-man roster.  Now's your chance to test your powers of prognostication:  Who gets added and who gets subtracted?  Post your prediction below and if you're right, you win . . . . . . . . . . fame and fortune!  Well, one of those, anyway.  This is just for September 1 callups, as there could be more later in the month.  What follows is a fairly inclusive list of the possibilities (excluding players who are injured and known for certain to be unable to return, as well as Travis Ishikawa, who won't be eligible for activation for about another week).
