Scherzer, not even a question. As a Twins fan I know all too well just how inconsistent Liriano is. You can usually tell within the first two innings how the game is going to go for him. He doesn't make the necessary adjustments in a game to be great and he doesn't step up in big games. Yes, when he's on he's ON and you can't touch him, but that's like once every four or five games. His no hitter was a fluke and a product of going up a team that, at that point, was struggling just as much as the Twins, if not more, at the time. Not to mention the obvious that he has absolutely NO run support what so ever.

Liriano is an ace when he's on, and he has been showing signs of settling down. His sore shoulder is better, and he's pitching his game instead of the pitch-to-contact stuff the pitching staff was trying to enforce. If Liri has an iffy next start, I'm on the Scherzer bus, but if he shows signs of coming around next start, I'd go with Liriano all the way.

no way no how. Liriano is sooo streaky. How many commentators used variations on the word "UGLY" when describing his no-no earlier? this from a twins fan. Sad to say, but Liriano's ceiling is Scherzer's baseline as has been pointed out above.
