Is Lohse BETTER than Liriano?

Lohse is off to a horrible start to say the least. However, he has been a below-average starter the last couple of seasons, not chopped-liver. With adequate run support he would have sported a better record the last couple of seasons, but the Twins can not provide on a consistent basis adequate run support.

Am I a fan of his? No.
Did I think he was worthy of a starting rotation spot entering the season? Yes
Do I think he is worth one now? No, time to give someone else (Liriano) the ball.
Would I ever have Lohse on my fantasy team: No, due to low run support, him being a below-average starter and him not a big K guy.
Is what the Twins are doing with Liriano good? Yes, it worked for Santana.
Will Liriano be starting my the end of May at the latest? I have no doubt.
