Pirates to sign Francisco Liriano for two-years, $14m >

Good move for them, others out there for Mets RT : Pirates gave Francisco Liriano 2 years/$14 million....

Francisco Liriano had a 5.34 ERA in 2012, but K/BB/HR combo produced a 4.34 FIP. You'll prob hear his name as a "bounceback" candidate.

Given the choice between Francisco Liriano at 2/$14M and Edwin Jackson at 4/$52 M, I'd chew my right arm off before my left.

Mejia seems like a much better option than any of these leftovers.

Wow wow wow. 14 mill for him ? And that's why Toronto traded their best prospects this year. They've acquired 100,000,000 in pitchers for prospects.
