Liriano could be this years AJ Burnett. right now in AAA he has 11 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 17 K ..and 0 walks.
Karstens is also an above average pitcher.
Cole is one of their top 5 starters, they are competing for a playoff spot and they aren't rushing him. The only reason to wait is to play the super 2 game while throwing an inferior pitcher out there.
