Report: Liriano to Pirates

The Pirates agreed to terms on a two-year, $14 million contract with pitcher Francisco Liriano, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on Friday.

The deal is pending a physical.

Liriano, 29, was 6-12 with a 5.34 ERA in 34 games, including 28 starts, for the Twins and White Sox last season. He spent most of his career with Minnesota and had his best year during an All-Star 2006 season when he was 12-3 with a 2.16 ERA.

they over paid. arm problems.

AND EVEN MORE THANTHAT HEAD PROBLEMS

Pirates will never win until ownership changes. Any player that has success is traded for so called prospects, which means a lower payroll and less wins!

I really like Liriano’s dominance when healthy. He is a rare lefty with electric stuff. If the Yankees were smarter they would have aggressively pursued him!
