Bill Brink of the Post-Gazette put up his prediction for the Pirates' initial 25-man roster. Thoughts?

I'm still hoping for a first base upgrade and for a surprise return from A.J. Burnett. We shall see...

Not much to nitpick considering the 4th OF is really the only realistic roster question mark (since we know the Pirates will always construct their bench with two utility IF, and they have those already in Barmes and Harrison). But, Brink leaves out Chris Dickerson as a possibility, who I don't think is really that distant away of a chance as Snider or Decker. Snider is likely the favorite since he's out of options and wasn't tendered for no reason, but I'm still not convinced he might not make it out of ST since his full contract isn't guaranteed. I'll say Decker gets it, but it will probably come down to who performs best in ST.
