FRANCISCO LIRIANO RUMORS

Game 9: Tigers 1 Pirates 0

It is a positive sign that the Pirates were willing...

Francisco Liriano an interesting option among Week 11 Two Start Pitchers

Plenty of Two Start Pitchers options on the waiver wire for Week 11 of the Fantasy Baseball season. Would you stop reading if I told you I like A.J. Burnett and Francisco Liriano this week?
