For as good as this guy is there's surprisingly little hype about him. Last year at AAA Rochester, Liriano posted a jaw-dropping 1.78 ERA and a 9-2 record. He came up for a few games with the twins at the end of the season and didn't perform very well, but it's fairly obvious he has nothing left to prove at the AAA level.
Anyway, enough preaching about how much i'm looking forward to seeing this guy, what are everyone's predictions?
*note* - not sure if this is the right section for this, feel free to move it if it's in the wrong spot.
Liriano should be a top of the rotation guy eventually, and may even compete with Santana for Cy Young's..He has that much upside.. As for this year... he is fighting for the 5th spot in the rotation, with Kyle Lohse, and Scott Baker... With Lohse probably getting the nod at first, but will lose that spot quickly (I apologize if I've miss spelled his Name..Kyle Lohse
anyway... Liriano should eventually get a spot in the rotation at some point this season, and I think sooner rather than later...(Wouldn't be surprised to see him start off the season in the rotation) He probably won't dominate this year, but you never know!
Future allstar..and a Sweet Minor League Keeper player!
Hope that helps
