Believe it or not, the Pirates’ first spring training game comes in just over a week, February 23 against the Phillies. Despite the many free agents still out there, it’s unlikely the Pirates will do anything more than maybe bring in an NRI reliever or two. So it’s a good time to offer up your ideas about the opening day roster. Who will make it? Or who should make it? Make your picks, either who you think will be there or who you want to see, or both.
I’ll start with my list. This is sort of a hybrid between what I think they’ll do and what I’d like to see.
