Seriously, how does a writer for ESPN mistake Francisco Liriano for Nelson Liriano?. One didn't even play in the 21st century.
Huh - former infielder, no relation to Francisco Liriano. Caple showing his age, having a senior moment.
.It's Francisco Liriano, not Nelson. Searage is great, but he can't turn a 50-yr-old ex-INF into a pitcher.
who's starting? Francisco Liriano since Cole pitched Sunday? Or will cole be rested enough?

PIT 2 7 1 SD 3 1 0 San Diego (AP) -- It was a classic win by the punchless San Diego Padres. Everth Cabrera's bunt single in the first inning was the only hit Wednesday by the Padres, who still beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 thanks to Francisco Liriano's wildness. ''That's Padres baseball right there,'' Cabrera said with a big grin. The Padres hit only two balls out of the infield: one that was caught by an outfielder and the other was a sacrifice fly that was caught by second basemanJosh Harrison in short right. ''There are lot of ways to win a baseball game and that was one of them,'' said manager Bud Black, who has presided over two of the three victories in franchise history in which the Padres had only one hit. San Diego won 1-0 at San Francisco on April 20, 2010, when Jonathan Sanchez and Sergio Romo combined on a one-hitter. San Diego beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 on July 19, 1975, when Steve Stone and Tom Dettore had a combined one-hitter. ''You never know what's going to happen in a big league ...

It would be easy to assemble an All-Star staff of pitchers who have excelled after Tommy John surgery, aces such as Adam Wainwright, Francisco Liriano and Stephen Strasburg, who returned from elbow
If we could catch some breaks, we wouldn't have to worry about hitting. In the April 29 game Reds playing against the Cubs, Billy Hamilton scored a run in the 1st inning without the Reds getting a hit. He walked, stole 2nd, went to 3rd on a wild pitch, and came home on a sac fly. Three of Hamilton’s 13 runs so far this season have been scored without a hit. On April 21, he led off the second inning against Francisco Liriano with a walk. He then stole second, advanced to third on a wild pitch, waited out another walk, and scored on a second wild pitch. On April 21, again with Liriano on the mound, Hamilton was hit by a pitch, advanced to third on a groundout back to the pitcher (he had been trying to steal), and scored on a fielder’s choice. :-D
Ike will like his fresh start with the Pirates After disappointing tenure with Mets, he'll have chance to shine in Pittsburgh: Pirates general manager Neal Huntington has had so many of these smart, under-the-radar moves pay off that it's easy to believe in this latest one. His new first baseman, Ike Davis, is a mere 27 years old, a former first-round Draft pick and a player with a very, very high ceiling. We'll get back to him in a bit. Huntington has a good track record with these kinds of moves. He believed in A.J. Burnett at a time when a lot of people didn't. Huntington, at least, thought Burnett was worth a gamble. Burnett resurrected his career in Pittsburgh, and along the way, helped resurrect a franchise, too. Huntington has gotten tremendous return from plenty of others, too -- Francisco Liriano, Jason Grilli, Mark Melancon, Jeff Karstens, etc. As good as the Pirates have been in producing homegrown talent, they would not have gone to the playoffs last season for the first time since 1992 withou ...
Likes and dislikes for today's later games: You wouldn't think the Dan Uggla-Stephen Strasburg matchup would be a good one for the Braves' whiff-prone 2B. But quite surprisingly, Uggla is 11-for-27 with 2 HR and 8 RBI v. the Nats' ace. And not so surprisingly, he has struck out 10 times. The lefties -- Freddie Freeman and Jason Heyward -- also have very solid numbers v. Strasburg. Bryce Harper is off to a poor start, with two strikeouts in each of his first four games. But he is 5 for 10 v. Julio Teheran. Leadoff man Denard Span is 7 for 15. I'm always leery of SPs v. the potent Cardinals offense, but Francisco Liriano was lights-out against them last year -- 2 runs in 24 IP. Pedro Alvarez had a big game last night and sets up well vs. Joe Kelly. Be careful with David Price against Texas, as his career ERA is 5+ against them -- albeit much of that damage was done in Arlington, not under the Tropicana Field dome. Alex Rios is 11 for 27, including 6 XBHs v. Price. Meanwhile, Nick Martinez will make his firs ...

Congrats to Clint Hurdle named Manager of the Year and Francisco Liriano as Comback Player of the Year. Next up Andrew McCutchen as MVP?
Who to cheer for now, with Pittsburgh and former Twins Justin Morneau and Francisco Liriano eliminated from the baseball playoffs?
I found myself in tears on many occasions this baseball season...none of which were induced by sadness but rather pride, joy and relief. Pride as I watched a city unite to shake the walls of PNC Park. Joy as the playoff champagne was popped. Relief as the memories of Sid Bream were erased by win and the memories of Derek Bell, Jeromy Burnitz, Matt Stairs, Rod Barajas, Matt Morris, Matt Diaz, Ramon Vasquez, Raul Mondesi...you get the point...were replaced by the memories of Russel Martin, Francisco Liriano, Justin Morneau and Marlon Byrd. This young group of Bucs brought the magic back to the north shore, but most importantly an entire generation back to baseball. Thank you to the Pittsburgh Pirates for bringing out the kid in me again and giving this great city a baseball team to be proud of! Looking forward to next year and many to come!
Looks like Justin Morneau and Francisco Liriano are in a familiar spot: out of the playoffs in the first round. Well at least they got the Wild Card game win.
Red Sox move on to the ALCS (and thankfully, Detroit and Oakland still have to fly across the country to play a game 5 in Oakland before either team heads into Boston to take on the "Red Beards"...Great game from Jake Peavy (breaking out of his past struggles in the playoffs while w/ the Padres) and it was AWESOME to see Koji get redemption and revenge right away the night after giving up the walk off homer. That was KEY to retaining his ultra confidence and dominance going forward. So psyched!! Detroit with an injured Miggy Cabrera might be the easier foe (Even w/ Scherzer and Verlander in their rotation) though because those Oakland youngsters are SERIOUS challenges for ANY team w/ limited scouting reports, etc. Sonny Gray, Jarrod Parker, and Dan Straily are all scary as it brings back memories of past Sox teams struggling SO much against young pitchers just called up (Kazmir, Francisco Liriano, and many more if I put a lot of thought into it come to mind when they were newbies w/ Tampa Bay and Minnesot ...

Game 1's first pitch us scheduled for shortly after 4 PM Central, from Busch Stadium.

Neil Huntingdon is the reason the Pirates are here. Russell Martin, Francisco Liriano, Marlon Byrd. I still think Morneau will pay dividends. Thanks Neil.
The Reds have fallen to the Pirates by a score of 6-2. Russell Martin went 3 for 4 with 2 HR and 2 RBI, Marlon Byrd was 1 for 4 with a HR and 2 RBI and Francisco Liriano gave up only 1 Run and fanned 5 through 7 IP, picking up the win. Shin-Soo Choo hit a solo shot for the Reds, and Jay Bruce had an RBI single. Johnny Cueto gave up 4 runs on 7 hits in just 3.1 innings of work and takes the loss. Pittsburgh will travel to St. Louis to kick off a best of 5 NLDS. -RYAN
Good to see the Twins' Justin Morneau and Francisco Liriano lead them to victory in the playoffs tonight. Oh wait, the Twins traded both of them. We had Vance Worley and Chris Canthitaballo. Well played Terry Ryan, well played.

What a great night in Pittsburgh tonight. Funny how it was Russell Martin, Marlon Byrd, and Francisco Liriano who helped them win tonight. It brings back memories of when the Yankees made the playoffs in 1995. Let's Go Bucs!!!
Well it's very bittersweet watching Justin Morneau and Francisco Liriano play well for a playoff team...
Congrats to Justin Morneau, Francisco Liriano and the Pittsburgh Pirates for winning the Wild Card and heading to PLAYOFFS in 21 years!!
And the Pittsburgh Pirates are going to the NLDS! Amazing...Everything I said before the game came to fruition. Cueto was off his game, and Marlon Byrd and Russel Martin took advantage with solo HRs. Francisco Liriano was incredible on the mound tonight. Fans were awesome all night. Congratulations to them. Gonna be a great series with the Cardinals
Russell Martin bashed two homeruns, Marlon Byrd added a solo shot and a pair of RBI and Francisco Liriano dominated hitters though seven innings as the Pirates slammed the Reds 6-2 to advance to the National League Divisional Series. Pittsburgh Sports Report
Greg Mamary, Clint Hurdle, Francisco Liriano, Russell Martin, Marlon Byrd and Jason Grilli are in a relationship and we're consummating it as I type. LET'S GO BUCS!
It's great to see the Pirates taking it to the Reds tonight. So many former "big time past their prime" players on this Pirates roster and they are all contributing tonight. Francisco Liriano (I still wish my Giants hadn't traded him away when he was just starting up) is dealing. Russell Martin (love that he no longer wears the Dodger Blue) has 2 HRs already and Marlon Byrd has added a 2 run shot (big waiver wire deal right there). Can't wait to watch this Pirate club celebrate after they beat up on the Reds. -SA-
Is anybody else watching Francisco Liriano pitch one *** of a great Game...and Justin Morneau Get 2 Hits...All of This and its a Playoff Game ...Oh ya Bye the Way Michael Cuddeyer Just came off his Best year In the Majors and won the Batting Title...As a Deadicated and Frustrated Twins Fan I'm Happy For them...The Owners Should put a Full Page Ad in the Paper apologizing for putting a Triple A Team on the Field. I've Said it 3 yrs in a Row now but ...They get only get better because they Can't get Any Worse..So Another Season of Twins Baseball comes to a Close with us Wondering just where is this Team Headed. I'm Hoping that Terry Ryan has the Answer along with Gardy for a Product that we Can Put on the Field and Say ...That's A Baseball Team.Until Next Season I'll be Jumping on the Lynx Bandwagon...Peace and Blues.
Don Larsen and Roy Halladay need to make some room- Francisco Liriano is going to pitch a playoff no-hitter. Maybe even a perfecto.

Manager Clint Hurdle has chosen a nine-man pitching staff that includes starters Francisco Liriano, who will get the ball for the 8:07 p.m. ET game against the Reds, and Gerrit Cole, who will be available if early relief is needed. The rest of the bullpen will include the seven relief mainstays: Jeanmar Gomez, Bryan Morris, Vin Mazzaro, lefties Tony Watson and Justin Wilson, setup man Mark Melancon and closer Jason Grilli. As expected, the Bucs are going with three catchers -- Russell Martin, John Buck and Tony Sanchez -- and a full complement of infielders, with both Garrett Jones and Gaby Sanchez available behind starting first baseman Justin Morneau. The other infielders include Pedro Alvarez, Clint Barmes, Neil Walker, Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer. The only questionable call was on the fifth outfielder along with starters Starling Marte, Andrew McCutchen and Marlon Byrd, and No. 4 outfielder Jose Tabata.

Good thing Gardy got a renewal, I know how tough it's been for him to have to work without any talent.
Pirates lose to Cubs, 4-2 . Francisco Liriano tiptoed along a tightrope for five innings. In the sixth, the Chicago Cubs knocked him off. Darnell McDonald's three-run home run in the sixth inning sent the Pirates to a 4-2 loss at Wrigley Field Tuesday, preventing them from sweeping the Cubs and clarifying their to-do list for the weekend. Cubs starter Jake Arrieta prevented the Pirates from threatening on offense for his six innings of work, and three Cubs relievers followed suit. To have any shot at winning the NL Central, the Pirates the need the Cubs to help them out. Only a Cubs sweep of the Cardinals in St. Louis this weekend and a Pirates sweep of the Cincinnati Reds would pull the Pirates and Cardinals into a tie for first place and set up a 163rd regular-season game Monday at PNC Park to determine the division champion. The Pirates trail the Cardinals, who won Wednesday, by three games with three to play. Short of that, the task is simple, win the series against the Reds and the one-game wild-car ...

Happy for my friends in Pittsburgh & for former Justin Morneau and Francisco Liriano for the making the playoffs!
Congrats to Justin Morneau and Francisco Liriano on making the playoffs. Go Pirates.
Staff Writer With humble apologies to Ernest Thayer, the original author of “Casey at the Bat," here is my revised edition to recap Friday's thrilling win: The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Cincinnati nine on Friday night; Pittsburgh fans were yelling, singing and dancing with all their might, The score stood 5 to 2 with the ninth inning yet to play; I sulked in my chair and moaned “we let this one get away." The crowd at PNC Park rose to its feet; Sensing the fate, the Reds would soon meet. Mark Melancon on the mound replacing Francisco Liriano; Pirate fans demonstrated more, confident the foe was done for. When Joey Votto fanned, my sulking turned to fright; Then Ryan Ludwick ripped a sharp single to right, All hope seemed lost, our tears nearly let loose; When the Bucs defense retired Jay Bruce. It is at moments of absolute despair, that fear can be beat; Jordy Mercer just threw Todd Frazier’s grounder into the seats; Cincinnati trailed 5 to 3 two outs let’s keep doing our part, Frazier wa ...
Good Morning FB Family and Friends. Its been a tough week with the Pirates closer Mark Melancon blowing 2 save opportunities with 2 outs. Last night was even worst since we had a 3 run lead going into the 9th. If anyone find our bullpen closers that did the job earlier this season please send them to PNC Park before 7:05 pm. Joey Votto's homer lifts Reds past Pirates 6-5, into Wild Card tie. Francisco Liriano pitched a splendid game thru 8 inning and it doesn't make sense why Clint Hurdle pulled him especially since our closer hasn't done well recently. Maybe Clint if you left Francisco in we would have won. Time to let it go. Tonight Reds Homer Bailey 11-10 vs Pirates AJ Burnett 8-11. Lets get back on track Bucco's starting tonight. Lets Go Bucs! Pitt at Duke today, current line is Pitt -4.0 and over/under 50.5. I'm hearing there there more Pitt fans than Duke fans at the game. Lets Go Pitt ! Tomorrow Steelers - Bears at Heinz Field. Current line Bears -2.0 and over/under 40.5. Here We Go Steelers, Here ...
Padres vs Pirates (68-80) (87-62) Monday 9/16, 4:05 PM PT at PNC Park, Game Preview At peak performance, Pirates welcome Padres Winners of six of last seven, first-place Bucs start Burnett vs. Cashner PITBurnett fans seven over 6 1/3 solid frames The Pirates are playing their best baseball when it matters most. Pittsburgh, knotted with St. Louis at the top of the National League Central, will play host to the Padres for a four-game series this week, and the Pirates will come into Monday's opener with six wins in their last seven games. The Pirates got a victory Sunday with their starting pitcher -- Francisco Liriano -- taking a no-hit bid into the seventh inning and with a pinch-hitter -- Justin Morneau -- coming through with the decisive hit. Morneau, acquired from Minnesota on Aug. 31, is batting .279 (12-for-43) with Pittsburgh. Monday's series opener will bring an interesting pitching matchup in Andrew Cashner and A.J. Burnett. Cashner, who was slowed in Spring Training by an offseason thumb injury, h ...
The Cubs fall to the Pirates this afternoon by a final of 3-2. Kyle Farnsworth picks up the W, Pedro Strop gets the L, Mark Melancon with the save. The Cubs couldn't touch Francisco Liriano until they picked up 3 straight hits in the 7th, including a long 2-run shot from Welington Castillo. Strop gave up a soft RBI single to Justin Morneau in the 8th for the game-winner. Cubs head to Milwaukee tomorrow night; a 7:10 first pitch in the opener.

MLB Game Picks - Friday: July 5, 2012 Two things yesterday kept it from being a great day and caused it to become just a decent day. The first was Josh Hamilton's home run in the ninth inning. I would have let Adam Wainwright finish the game. But hindsight is always 20/20. The second was that crazy game between the Mets and the Diamondbacks. My pick in that game had multiple chances to win and after fifteen innings (of course it was extra innings!) could not. Still, it was a very enjoyable day of baseball with day games galore. There is only one day game today as the Cubs play their traditional home day game on Friday. Here are Friday's picks: The Cubs over the Pirates: So let's go with those Cubbies then with Jeff Samardzija on the mound. He can shut down the Pirates' lineup and perhaps score two or three runs off of Francisco Liriano to squeak out a win. It is a stretch, but the Pirates will be tested before this year is out. The Phillies over the Braves: The Braves are so unpredictable. With a line ...
Francisco Liriano runs the bases like Jeff Suppan.
should trade for Francisco Liriano. We could package Kyle Blanks and Logan Forsythe. We need another strong pitcher
I have made a HUGE blockbuster fantasy trade. 14 players involved. 7 going each way. I am trading the following players" 1B/OF Adrian Gonzalez OF Adam Jones OF Andrew McCutchen RHP Felix Hernandez OF Coco Crisp RHP Ernesto Frieri LHP Francisco Liriano. I am acquiring: 1B Paul Goldschmidt 1B/OF Allen Craig OF Dom Brown RHP Zack Greinke RHP Julio Teheran LHP Mike Minor RHP Alex Cobb I made this trade for a number of reasons: I really wanted Dom Brown, and I want him on my team the next time he has tear like he did in May. Goldschmidt is having an amazing season. Greinke is just coming back from the DL, and his best days are ahead of him. Minor has been great all year. Cobb was pitching great before getting hit in the head the other day, but he will be back soon. Adrian Gonzalez plays in a pitcher friendly Dodger Stadium. I will miss Jones and McCutchen. Crisp I always thought was overrated. Frieri and Liriano have been good but not great.
Burnett bullies Cubs with help from El Toro: A.J. Burnett carried a shutout into the ninth, and though Alfonso Soriano hit a two-run homer, Burnett had plenty of support. Pedro Alvarez drove in three, two via a long home run, and Russell Martin also went deep for the 100th time in his career. Burnett carries shutout into ninth to top Cubs Pirates get to traditionally tough Samardzija to take Wrigley series. The magnitude of four runs is a matter of perspective. For Yasiel Puig, for instance, it is one swing. For A.J. Burnett, however, it is a typical month's worth of run support, making it more significant. And when it comes at the expense of Jeff Samardzija -- well, it grows exponentially. A four-run lead by the fourth inning against Samardzija certainly seemed insurmountable in the hands of Burnett, who turned it into a 6-2 victory by following Francisco Liriano's impressive series-opening performance with one of his own. Only difference: While Liriano did it for only seven innings in Friday's 2-0 shuto ...

Yes, friends, it's time once again to hand our star-of-the-day awards for Wednesday! Let's start with Wednesday's top pitchers...the third star is C.J. Wilson of the Angels! In a 7-1 triumph over Seattle, C.J. recorded 10 strikeouts in 8 innings while giving up 6 hits and 1 run! Our second star is the Pirates' Francisco Liriano, who ran his record to 3-0 on the year with a 1-0 win over the Cubs! Francisco gave up just 2 hits over 7 innings and recorded 9 strikeouts as well! Cliff Lee of the Phillies reigns as our number-one star; Cliff tossed a complete-game 3-hit shutout over the Marlins! He also had 2 walks and 5 strikeouts in the 3-0 decision! By the way, a special mention goes to Tyler Lyons of the Cardinals, who won in his big-league debut! Tyler went 7 strong innings against the Padres, giving up 1 run on 4 hits in a 5-3 St. Louis win! Now on to our top sluggers...the number-three star is the Reds' Zack Cozart, who went 4-for-5 with 2 runs scored in a 7-4 win over the Mets! Chris Davis of the Oriole ...

logo Pirates close to deal with Jonathan Sanchez Jonathan Sanchez is close to a deal with the word is, he's healthy and worked all winter on mechanics. — Jon Heyman (February 4, 2013 There are two ways to react to what would almost certainly be a minor league deal for Jonathan Sanchez. One is to shrug and say, "Well, I'd rather have Jonathan Sanchez in camp on a minor league deal for a tryout than Brian Bass. If Oliver Perez can become an effective LOOGY four years after ceasing to be a relevant big league pitcher it can happen to anyone." The second is to freak out and draw conclusions about Francisco Liriano's deal and/or health. I think it's safe to sit back and assume that the only way that Jonathan Sanchez ends up in Pittsburgh on Opening Day is if he pitches his way there, Liriano or no Liriano, so let's take a second and discuss the possibilities of that happening. Once upon a time, Sanchez was mentioned practically in the same breath as Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum as pitchers that were going to b ...

If the Padres don't sign Edwin Jackson then their next best free agent options are Kyle Lohse, Shaun Marcum, and Francisco Liriano.
What happened this week, and where do the Cubs go from here? Expect to hear names like Edwin Jackson, Shaun Marcum, Carlos Villanueva, and Francisco Liriano.
Red Sox Interested In Shaun Marcum, Ryan Dempster, Kyle Lohse, Francisco Liriano, Anibal Sanchez The Red Sox have an obvious need for a fifth starter — not necessarily a No. 5 starter — and they're willing to exhaust all of their options in looking to solidify their rotation. Boston has shown an interest in Ryan Dempster, Kyle Lohse, Francisco Liriano, Shaun Marcum and Anibal Sanchez, according to Sean McAdam of Comcast Sports Net.
If we were to assume that health care costs were contained to a 3% annual increase for the next 42 years, Canadians will spend roughly 10.88 trillion to provide care over that period of time. If we assume that John Ivison from the National Post is correct on his costing estimate on the F35 then the cost over the same time period would be .o46 trillion. That means that for every dollar spent on aerial defence and security that Canadians will spend $237 on health care, which demonstrates how perspective on these things matter.

Trevor Plouffe's two-run homer ended former teammate Francisco Liriano's no-hit bid, but the Twins still lost.
Lefty, Righty Balance Sox fans have to be encouraged after Francisco Liriano's performance against his former team. Francisco allowed only a two run homer, the only hit the Twins could manage against him over seven innings. Sox win 5-3. When Liriano came into the league, Johan Santana was flying high in North Star land, one of the best hurlers in all of baseball. Liriano came into the majors with a lot of fan fare, and led the minor leagues in strikeouts his only year in the minors. Liriano has always been capable, but injuries have kept slowing his progress to return to the form he had when he first walked a mound in the majors. The Minnesota Twins initially purchased Liriano's contract in exchange for a deal which involved shipping AJ Pierzynski from the Twins to the SF Giants. Weird, huh...now they're both on the same team, one calling the signals and the other delivering. Anyway, Liriano was dazzling when he first came up. In his first year he was so good (12-3 with a 2.19 ERA) that people were talkin ...
