I like this deal for the Dbacks even though Livan has turned into a fly ball pitcher and is heading to one of the most notorious hitter's parks. Livan gives them a legitimate #2 guy behind Webb and he also has had good success against SF and SD in the past couple starts. He may have a large contract and not a great fastball, but I'll take him over 2 non-top tier prospects any day.
I don't know if Livan even slots as a #2 for the D'backs right now but if the prospects weren't that big of a deal at least Livan can eat innings. He's very good at eating...innings, Big Mac's, Krispy Kremes...pretty much anything you put in front of him.
