After 2 scoreless innings, Liriano threw a bad pitch that was well wide and short, and immediately came off the mound, had a quick talk, and was pulled. He may have blown out his arm. I would venture to say that the outlook of him coming back against this season is not good, unless we hear some less drastic news later.
shouldn't you be working? mister.
I think we can stick a fork in Liriano for '06....I suspected all along that he was too good to be true.........
It's kind of funny you mention that, because I was in the newsroom discussing election results, and the game was on one of the TVs, so I decided to check how Liriano looked... then about 3 pitches later, snap.
From what I've read, the Twins had basically said if there was any type of setback or pain, he would be shelved without a question... so yes on the fork, thermometer, etc.
