    Definitely is an abomination of a contract. Makes the Correia a little easier to take.

    This actually made me laugh out loud at work. I honestly think he will have ya know a couple good games that everyone will be like see we should have signed him! Then he will continue to be his old Liriano self and IMPLODE.

    so 7 mill / year for him to close? Bleh.

    Either way, good luck Bucs. You'll need it and a large dose of patience.

    The problem with Liriano is he most likely won't reach his potential.

    The problem with Correia is he most likey will.

    Of course he will. He will be added to the list of players the Twins didn't want who moved on and excelled:
    Ortiz
    Dickey
    Hardy
    Marquis
    Garrett Jones (for a while)

    .000000001 %. SO im guessing you believe the Twins should have resigned Liriano?

    I'd say closer to 40% than Allhopeisgone's .000000001% . And yes, I would have resigned him for that.

    I must have missed the part where Liriano led the White Sox to a championship last October under Cooper's mentorship.

    If Liriano does succeed with the Pirates, it will have everything to do with Francisco pulling his head out of his ass and nothing to do with the Pirates front office or coaching staff. And for $14m, I'd prefer to see someone other than the Twins roll those dice. I like the chance the Twins are taking on Haren and Pelfrey better than dishing that kind of money to Liriano.

    (but the Correia signing was still awful)

    haha you would have resigned Liriano...Are you nuts? For 2 years 14 million!? He is worth a mere fraction of that. Pfffttt 40%, yupp all of a sudden Liriano is going to turn into an All Star. No way.

    I picked him for the Cy Young last year, so I'm gradually tempering my expectations

    I actually like Correia in that scenario to be honest. With Liriano you have to basically catch lightning in a bottle.
    Despite his inconsistency, I'd say the odds favor Liriano outperforming Correia by a wide margin. I suspect Correia doesn't finish his first year.

    Well then they just grossly over paid for a guy who has zero track record of being successful in the pen.

    What difference does the money make? As of now, that money is going into the Pohlad's pocket. I'd rather see it spent on someone who might help the Twins, even if it's a ".00000001" percent chance.
