I think it was 2010 he lead most of the season in FIP or something like that, then way back when he first came up he was just filthy.

How did his slider look?

I wouldn't have touched Liriano, but I took a chance in two leagues last night hoping that he could rebound like Burnett has in Pittsburgh. I stashed him on my DL, but I'm tempted to pull him into the lineup for next week and get good starts while I can in the fear that he'll implode at some point like he has in the past.

I picked him up but I'm waiting until at least two more good starts until I start him. I'd rather have Kazmir but missed out on him because I waited too long, so I just don't want to do the same thing here. I'm expecting him to stink but who knows..

I don't think I would be OMG he is awesome again. consider the competition. Mets, Brewers, and Cubs tonight. but still encouraging the walks have been in check. 2, 3, 1.

I agree but even forgiving the fact he has faced like the worst teams in baseball so far you have to understand the jekyl and hyde nature of Liriano. He can cruise through 4 or 5 starts and follow them up with 10 straight awful games. He is just so unpredictable.

That's just the beauty of pitching in the NL though, the ratio of bad to good teams you pitch against is pretty good for fantasy owners.
