Not too many people high on Liriano. He is at best a very late round pick.

I think really only you can answer that one. After a while in a draft I typically just get to a pt where I see a pitcher like Liriano's upside being better than anything else out there(earlier than most). But to be more specific, I don't see any reason drafting him should be frowned upon once you get to the 13-15th rounds.

The 13-15th round should still have some very good SPs out there that are far better picks than Liriano. Guys like Zimmerman, Luebke, Hellickson, Sanchez, Marcum all go 120+ overall usually. Liriano is more like a round 22+ pick imo when you are looking at the likes of Johan Santana, Danks, Lilly, etc. as options and that is if you are high on Liriano. If you want to reach for him in the late teen rounds that is fine I guess, but I would not go any higher than that imo. Obviously I am not a fan of Liriano and with pitching as deep as it is now, there is no reason to reach or a guy like him imo.
