After One-Hitter, Where Will The Pirates Get Offense?

One day after the Atlanta Braves held the Pirates to just five hits in a 5-4 defeat win over Bucs and the day of Julio Teheran twirling a no-hit bid into the 8th inning, it seems appropriate to ask when Pittsburgh’s offense will begin to turn it on.

Francisco Liriano’s 2014 Option Details

  Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports has the details on Francisco Liriano’s vesting option. Here are the highlights: **Liriano’s option will vest at $6 M if he is not on the DL for 120 days due to his arm injury. If he doesn’t re-injure his arm, that will give him 142 days on the season, since he came up on May 11th. I don’t see him re-injuring his non pitching arm at this point, so expect him to be under...
