If Liriano can throw off of a mound by the end of February, then there's little risk. Hopefully, the Bucs' medical staff can take a look and Liriano can be brought into the fold. At least then the Pirates would have some SP depth:

A.J.
Wandy
J-Mac
Karstens
Liriano
K-McP / Locke
Cole (around July or so)

That's eight starters (three rookies). That could end up being OK.

Throw Morton into the mix for mid-season as well. Obviously, they think he's going to be ready and contribute.


While it would be nicer to have 3 'locks' as opposed to only 2 with another 5 'wild cards', it's not crazy to think that such a bunch (even without Liriano) could be enough to crack 81 right?

Surely one (or two please!) of those 'wilds' can develope into something of a 'lock'... just need the rest to be decent.

(Someone please remember this was not only thought of, but actually written in nine months when they're all posting 5+ ERA's and swapping spots on the DL. ;) :D )

I see Morton as a wish more than a pitcher. Even when he was effective, he was giving up a ton of hits and exhibiting sketchy control. He's truly a $2 million lottery ticket.
