It blows my mind that that's basically market value for a guy like Liriano in this league...but hey, he just turned 29, he still pitches 9+K/9, he's a lefty...it's easy to see why he's still a commodity.

Considering he's being signed to be the #4 guy and will likely be pushed to #5 by the end of the season I won't complain. I'm happy to see the Pirates actually spend money on the bottom of the rotation instead of just skimming the leftovers for Spring Training Invitees and see if any of them can stick like usual.

Hopefully he won't fall apart like Bedard did last year.
