Perhaps his suckiness the last few years affected his contract even more...

his stats in the last 3 years were backwards and nothing positive out of his career, he was lucky to get a million deal, after all fall or no fall the competition most go on,,,

He broke his arm some other way. They always blame the bathroom fall. Who falls in a bathroom anyway?

the bathroom is the last place to fall, accidents happens but very seldom to an sport person!!!

Good for the Bucs for making him earn his money, instead of guaranteeing all of it.

wiseup Liriano's so called fall in bathroom will not only cost Liriano it will cost the Pirates for 1 year. Pirates were wise to only Guarentee one year. Liriano could kiss the bonus goodbye.
