Continuing the Liriano debate
July, 29, 2008
Two recent events, perhaps related, perhaps not. Monday night, Kevin Slowey tossed a shutout against the White Sox. Sunday night, Francisco Liriano ran his International League record to 11-2, striking out nine Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees (and walking only one) in six innings. Over Liriano's past 10 starts, he's struck out 73 hitters and walked nine. Meanwhile, back in Minneapolis the big club continues to run Livan Hernandez out there every fifth game.
