Liriano for Cy Young

Postby CeeLoGreen » Sat Jun 17, 2006 10:34 pm

If he keeps up his pace he could get some notice.

5-1, 36 IP, 35 Ks, 2.10 ERA, 0.92 WHIP since becoming a starter.

From what I have seen of him, he makes hitters look stupid from time to time. Blooper-reel stuff.

If he keeps performing, who knows?

Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

If he can keep that pace the rest of the season, he's got a lock on the Cy Young.

Then again, I won't be surprised if he tires down the stretch.

If the voting is like last year looking at wins rather than the peripheral numbers than unfortunately I don't think he will win. Colons 20+ wins seemed to take priority over Santana's under three ERA and under 1 whip.

He has five wins in the last month since becoming a starter. He goes 6 or 7 and Crain and Nathan come in and lock it down.

Too bad he has the pop-gun offence playing for him. I guess he would compete with Halliday,Johan and Contreras for the Cy honors. Hopefully they dont limit his innings too much.

You need wins to win the Cy Young, the Twins won't get enough for him.

It's probably Papelbon... even though Liriano is a SP and will pitch more innings. The Twins are a smaller market, and a CY from Boston is good "for baseball and ratings"

As I said earlier this season, if Halladay keeps pitching like he is right now (and there is no reason that he won't, considering Roy pitched even better than this last year), he will win the Cy Young.

Yea... for some reason though, he hasn't been getting the press he usually does. I think the media (ESPN) is kinda over him. I think it will go to either Paps or Liriano over Halladay (should all three be pitching like they are).

The Cy is all about the wins, I think we've learned that enough through the years. And if Halladay continues to pitch like we all know he can, he should conceivably get more wins than Liriano. BTW, we shouldn't forget Santana, but he might have the same problem of wins as Liriano.

And with Papelbon, he's had a fantastic year. But #1, the voters don't usually go with closers..and #2, I don't expect him to keep up his crazy .27 ERA. Once that's gone, there's really nothing much seperating him from say..B.J Ryan (who's another closer that's had an amazing year).
