I noticed today from just looking at the box score that Liriano was removed after only 6 innings of 1 hit ball. Granted, the four walks added to his pitch count, but recently it seems like he has been removed from games relatively early. Anyone have any news on his pitch count and if it will be increased anytime soon? Thanks...

I'm not sure about that pitch count, but he got hosed on the only hit in the sixth....infield single that the ump made a bad call on. I'm sure he would have been left in if he still had the no-no going.
he was hittin 96 on the gun against the final batter he faced (Vlad i believe).... so it looks like his stammina is good for when they do decide to loosen the reigns a little... which is good for those of us who own him
