Another haiku:

The bases are full,
Liriano winds and deals,
Walk earns RBI

A haiku:

Liriano's bad
Oh my god he's atrocious
Quick! Trade him for Wolf

Re: Aaron Harang - rebound season or sample size mirage?

Who do you like more between Harang and A.J. Burnett this season?
Harang for me, though I plan to start him based on matchups.

Speaking of which, I am on the fence on whether to start him vs. the Cubs today at Wrigley. Opinions?

Re: Liriano - Does he suck?

The first five innings were shutout ball... I can live with progress like that. He walked way too many today, though, so it may be a mirage. Time will tell on this one. Yeah, the point I keep trying to make is that he was pitching very very well and then suddenly, BAM! Same thing happened today, th...

Re: Liriano - Does he suck?

Still not sure if he sucks or not....not a bad game today, but against a lineup featuring one batter with an average above .250. I don't like the fact that he pitched 5 good innings and then gave up 2 HR separated by an out. That suggests that he's still running out of gas pretty early and suddenly ...

Re: What is the deal with Fuentes?

"Since I drafted Fuentes in all my leagues I'm feeling pretty :smug: about it, and even if he should lose out to Bailey in June he's already given me very good value. Hopefully you're in the same boat." Bailey owner here, with a couple questions - Still felling smug this morning? Still getting good...

Re: Liriano - Does he suck?

OK, here's my team. The league is a 13 (!!!) team keeper league using 6x6 scoring with OBP in place of BA and Holds as the sixth pitching stat. With only 4 bench spots and OF by position things can get very tight very quickly. Keep in mind that I'll be dropping another player soon (probably Bourjos)...

Re: Liriano - Does he suck?

I have Ubaldo returning from the DL and I need to drop a pitcher. Which of the following should go?

Josh Johnson (no)
Francisco Liriano
Gio Gonzalez
Aaron Harang
Ian Kennedy

I'm inclined to drop Kennedy. Anyone got a better idea?

Re: What is the deal with Fuentes?

I don't see any other A's getting save opportunities, so I think it's fair to describe him as their closer. Bailey and Fuentes throw from different sides so it wouldn't surprise me to see them both get saves for a while after Andrew returns. Ofc this assumes that neither becomes a clear-cut preferen...

Re: Liriano - Does he suck?

Francisco Liriano – 5 IP, 7 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks. Time for our first installment of Point/Counterpoint. Rudy says, “He’s #3 risky pitcher of 2011 and is pitching like he’s trying to prove me correct. He’s now 0-3 with a 9.42 ERA and hasn’t pitched more than 5 innings per start. On the plus side,...
