Francisco Liriano Named the Opening Day Starter

    That’s a James Santelli title if I ever heard one. Who has a better shot of cracking the rotation – him or Justin Wilson? I love Wilson in the late inning role but I’m also a giant wuss when it comes to fixing something that isn’t broke so to speak. So if Stolmy and Justin fit in really well in the relief role I’d be reluctant to move them unless they get nailed by injuries and need someone to go 5 innings in a spot start. But even then you have a whole slew of guys in AAA ready to step in for that. We sure have come a long ways from the Jimmy Anderson and JVB fill ins thank God.

    Just made me think of Major League, “someone get him a uniform.”

  • John Eshleman

    That slider, even in an ST bullpen session, looks like a MLB pitch. Hopefully, the change up is developing . . .

    Please leave those terrible jokes to Santelli. Oh, and forbid him from making them too. :-)

    • piratemike

      Ickyweb please don’t take it personal but why don’t you posters with those enormous whatever they are called ,start your post below your whatever they are called so that we don’t have to guess what you’re saying.
      I really wish Tim would change this format.
      When people respond to a post they are squeezed to one word a line and the post goes on forever.

    Let’s hope Stolmy is ready to be in the rotation. Nothing makes me think Wandy is healthy until Wandy says he is healthy. Right now we are seeing the same old song and dance as last August with the Pirates saying he is healthy but nothing from Wandy.

  • NHPirateFan

    Love the ST video. However, I would like a longer video instead of cutting to the pitch. It is cool to see the pitcher signal what is coming, then watch it develop.
    Agree with the nasty slider from ‘Thunder’ Stolmy
