The Pittsburgh Pirates have had an excellent week, going 4-2 in their six games played. Any disappointment leftover after splitting a very-winnable series against the San Diego Padres was quickly swept away after the Bucs took all three games against the defending champion San Francisco Giants. The sweep has put the team in a great position for a very successful road trip as they open a three game series in Atlanta tonight.

So who was the player most responsible for the previous week’s success in Pittsburgh Pirates baseball?

Starting this week, we will take Friday mornings to completely rank the entire 25-man Pirates roster and try to find that answer. Let’s get started with #25-#21

team. 4. If we didn’t make a pledge to rank EVERY player on the Pirates 25-man, <strong><a href=. #12. Previous: n/ath. Corey Hart. 25

team. 4. <strong><a href=. #59. Previous: n/ath. Antonio Bastardo. 24

4. <strong><a href=. #49. Previous: n/ath. Jeff Locke. 23. team

21. team. 4. <strong><a href=. #3. Previous: n/ath. Sean Rodriguez

We continue with the next five Buccos on the next slide.
