Much Better

Just last week I called Francisco Liriano’s career over. Today, he shut me the hell up:

Look at all those glorious pitches in the bottom of the strike zone. Liriano threw 97 pitches. His 91st pitch was a shade over 94 mph, and his slider averaged 87 mph and he threw 33 of them. If the slider is back, Liriano is back, simple as that.

  1. The first thing I notice about that is all the pitches below the strike zone – sliders. Only half of them were strikes, but when that pitch is working he’s firing on all cylinders!
