    Liriano Sigs with Pirates, Pavano also on Sandy's list

    December 19th, 2012 10:13 am (metsblog)

    Yesterday on WFAN, Sandy Alderson said free-agent LHP Francisco Liriano is on his list of pitchers who he would consider signing to join the Mets and compete for a spot in the rotation.

    According to Alderson, he feels the Mets need a pitcher capable of winning at least 10 to 12 games, who can slot in to the rotation now that R.A. Dickey has been traded the Blue Jays. Jeremy Hefner, Colin McHugh and Jenry Mejia will all be considered in Spring Training for this position, but he expects to sign a veteran free-agent or two to compete as well.

    Liriano was 6-12 in 34 starts last season with a 5.34 ERA for the White Sox and Twins.

    The Twins have reportedly been working to re-sign Liriano, but talks have been going ‘backwards,’ according to the Star-Tribune.

    Pavano bombed in the Bronx but has been a very serviceable starter. I'd take a chance on him.

    We do for depth... Liriano and Jurjens should be on Sandy's list for sure

    For me I think Jurrjens is more likely to bounce back so I'd rather take a shot at him.

    I like the idea of Santana and Liriano rejoicing once more.

    But he isn't from San Diego, Toronto or Oakland.
    Clay says this isn't happening because of that.

    Jurrgens or Liriano would be ideal for this club at this time. You can get lucky if these guys are healthy so if the price is right why not? I always said Liriano reminds me of a poor man's Johan Santana. Unite the former Twins for one season anyway.

    Love the idea of bringing either guy in. Low risk, high reward deals are right up SA's alley.

    Liriano worked really well with Santana back in the day, so maybe they'd do well together again.
