I would love Liriano. He worked very well as Santana being his mentor, reuniting them could be great. Liriano has struggled a bit lately, but he still has raw talent, still gives up less hits per inning, and more strikeouts per inning. It's a good risk and a cheap deal. Also, Liriano coming to the national league in a pitcher friendly ballpark would be good. He would also kill the Phillie's lineup since lefties do not hit homeruns off him at all.

This. This year is a throw away season practically to set up 2014. Jurrjens have a really high ceiling. If he can get back to pitching the way he was when he was at his best then we would have a real amazing rotation.

He worked well with Santana in 2006. He's only had one remotely decent season since.

At this point in his career it's time to stop remembering his 12-3 season where he was lights out. Instead, he's a pitcher who has posted a 5+ ERA in 3 of his past 4 seasons, has a WHIP sitting around 1.5, gets murdered by right handers, gets his 9 SO/9 but he counters that with 5 BB/9, and averages just over 5 IP per start which will KILL our bullpen.

I would argue this is more than "struggling a bit lately". Maybe as a reliever, but the walks are so high I don't see a fit there either.
