Liriano doesn't have it!

Closing Time: Mark Teahen wants another shot at Francisco Liriano

By Matt Romig

Kansas City Royals outfielder Mark Teahen could see the dip in Francisco Lirano's velocity.

He didn't have any trouble picking up the lefty's slider, either.

"He's still throwing 91 [miles per hour] and can still be a really productive pitcher," Teahen told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, "but definitely not the flash that was there in '06."

In other words: Teahen wasn't too impressed with Liriano's first start in 19 months Sunday, a 5-1 Royals victory.

And Teahen went 0-for-3!

Imagine what the rest of the Royals – the guys who accounted for the six hits and five walks and four runs in 4 2/3 innings – had to say.

The good news for fantasy owners is that Liriano got through it. Conditions weren't ideal, as the wind chill around game time was about 29 degrees. He still popped the fastball at 88-93 mph, but location was a problem.

Fifty-percent owned Brian Bannister had no such troubles. He's now 3-0 with a 0.86 ERA.;_ylt=AiRT4RzwddQ19_0ilWT.7ktNC5kB?urn=fantasy,76643

The only bad thing is that are facing a less than stellar Liriano, now we have to face Santana. Oh wait.... nevermind. :-D

Bury me a Royal.

I'm sure the mighty Mark Teahen was the reason for Liriano's sluggish first start. ;-)

Kudos to GiantsFan14 for the sig.

Lets hope. He's at least moving in the right direction now.
