I was going to post about this, but gave up when it seemed to wash through the local sports coverage as mostly bullshit.

When Liriano is good, he's great. But seriously, where's the guarantee that he will have a great 2011?
There was/is some speculation that if he starts the year doing great, he may be trade material, but thankfully people questioned WTF you'd trade him for? The Twins need good pitching and healthy players, that's really about it, so who cares what we could get for Liriano?

i've never been less excited about a baseball season about to start than i am this year...

and i actually think the mets could be better, but the whole madoff thing just puts a damper on it all.

Oh yeah, apart from the injury history he's a phenomenal pitcher. High K/9, lots of groundballs, and a lefty.

I think he starts the year in Minny.

Agreed. Liriano is one of the top pitchers in baseball, his slightly above average ERA hides the 3.02 xFIP.

Since injuries and upcoming free agent status hurt his case a bit, would you give up Betances? One injury risk for another.

I'd rather go for a guy like Gavin Floyd if the Twins ask for one of the Killer B's/Jesus/Sanchez.

I'd rather they keep Betances and Man-Ban in the minors for another year and put them in the rotation in 2012. They should be developing their own pitching, especially with these great young arms. The only one I'd be somewhat willing to trade is Brackman, mostly due to his contract. For now, I think they should go to war with what they have. Nova should be serviceable. Who knows what AJ has in store for this year.

By the way, Mark Prior threw his first inning in I don't know how long today. 1-2-3 with one strikeout and two popus. Hard not to root for this guy.

It seems that MLB is now fining owners for telling the truth.

So the Cubs are already in-fighting during Spring Training? Man, this is going to be a hell of a season.

What the hell does Gavin Floyd have to do with the Twins or the Yankees?

This post confuses me.

He expects the Sux to be out of the hunt by the end of April.

At least Silva took the blame...that makes it all better.


Oh, and 9 errors in 3 games looks great!
