How many times have the Pittsburgh Pirates signed Francisco Liriano this season?
Too many for my taste.
And it seems like the ongoing saga could drag into spring training.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting that general manager Neal Huntington is non-commital about signing the pitcher before spring training begins.
Liriano broke his non-throwing arm (right) in December before a contract between the teams was finalized. Reports of a deal being reached between the two surfaced before the injury took place. Since then, the sides have tried to come to an agreement without luck.
Today, they seem to be at an impasse.
For me, the Pirates should just move on.
