Well, I am sure that people will line up to watch the exciting matchup of the … *checks notes*… 2021 Pittsburgh Pirates and the 2021 Colorado Rockies. While this season might not be what either team’s fan bases would have wished for, both teams have shared skilled players in the past.

Why don’t we break down the top 5 players to play for each team?

Total Number of Shared Players: 60

Players to play exclusively for the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates:

Elias Diaz

Sam Howard

Honorable Mentions:

Tyler Anderson

Jeromy Burnitz

Shawn Chacon

Elias Diaz

Josh Fogg

Jason Grilli

Tony Womack

It really tempted me to put Tyler Anderson on this list because of how he was part of some of the best rotations that the Colorado Rockies have ever put together. Sadly, though, he has only just this season started playing for the Pirates, depending on how the rest of his time with the team goes he could be on in a future version of this series. The same goes for Elias Diaz, though I find that to be less plausible.
