The either/or question with Francisco Liriano and Jonathan Sanchez seems to have an answer. Tom Singer had an update on Twitter, saying Neal Huntington wants to sign both left-handers.
Neil Huntington tells me he wants to sign BOTH Liriano and Sanchez, for rotation options. Not an either-or scenario for #Pirates

That’s obviously a good thing, since both players have some upside, and the addition of Sanchez would add more rotation depth. I compared the two players last night, pointing out a lot of their similarities.
