FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: PIRATES INK SP FRANCISCO LIRIANO FOR TWO YEARS/$14 MILLION

The Pittsburgh Pirates continue to spend money like never before this offseason, signing free agent SP Francisco Liriano to a two-year deal for $14 million. 

Analysis:  This is a very interesting move for Liriano and his fantasy baseball value as he will be taking his sometimes electric stuff to the much easier NL.  Despite pitching to an above 5.00 ERA last season, Liriano still struck out a batter per inning and he is setting himself up for a nice value season in the easier circuit. We swore off Liriano for good last season but this move has us intrigued yet again.  As long as you draft him as only an SP 5, you have nothing to lose.
