This is a better use of money than 2/17 on Russell Martin. Liriano could be this year’s version of A.J. Burnett.

Part of the perception gap here is a function of defense-independent stuff. Liriano's raw ERA last year was 5.34, but his xFIP was a much friendlier 4.14. In 2011, the xFIP was a still moderately acceptable 4.52, and in 2010, it was a stellar 2.95.
Sure, but over his last 300 or so innings, spanning 4 seasons and 3 teams, his era+ is 80.
Two teams, not three. Unless you're counting the Pirates, which would seem kind of cheap...
Also, I get an 86 ERA+ over the last four years, not an 80.
what the hell happened?
Oh, and O. Perez was much worse than this guy.
But seriously, either this signing is going to be horrible or it's going to be another feather in the cap of the "NL = AAA" crowd.
