Francisco Liriano or Jarrod Parker? WHIP

Postby holiemacaroni » Wed Jun 06, 2012 1:41 am

Which Player has a greater UP side?

I'm kinda stuck in the middle.
Do you guys/gals think Liriano has turned the corner? I mean he was was an ACE of a pitcher staff and has some pretty good stuff I think he just has to find it. Can this kid finish strong?

Jarrod Parker is Pitching out of his mind right now. His ERA is 2.40 and WHIP 1.2 so far so good. Took TEXAS 8.0 IP while only giving up one HIT that is SUPER DUPER good epically against TEX. Think he can keep it up?

What are your thoughts? (yes i did just say super duper)

I am an A's fan, and have gotten to see Parker pitch... he is highly underrated in Fanstasy. the boy can pitch. Liriano teases then BLOWS UP for like 9 ER in 3 2/3 innings vs the Mariners... %-6

Jarrod for the win. B-)

help?

I just can't bring myself to trust Liriano anymore. I'd definitely go with
Parker. Liriano is so, so inconsistent despite his incredible talent, but he hasn't been good for a couple years now and I don't think that's gonna change anytime soon.

Sorry that's not very in-depth analysis, but I don't feel the need to say any more on the matter.

Thanks for the opinion on mine!

Parker. I'm done with Liriano, and I think even objectively Parker's the better pick.

Parker easily. Liriano doesn't even start on a regular basis for a last place team no less. PASS

I've put Liriano in the same class as Scherezer, never again.I've been burned too many times.He's sitting on my waiver wire right now and my trigger finger isn't even slightly twitchy.Pretty much nobody in my league will touch him with a 10 foot pole.Nothing worse than going up against someone with a great staff and barely losing ERA and WHIP because of one guys awful performance.When it happens enough you remember the bad times far worse than the good.
I think he's just lazy and doesn't take good care of himself.

I'm still not sure what Max's problem is,I think he may be too cerebral at times.Liriano not so much.
