In Liriano's preseason debut he threw just over half (52%) of his pitches for strikes. What we need to see from Liriano is his ability to consistently throw under control. He's a wild card with a huge upside, as well as a huge downside. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Even in Liriano's no-hitter last season he showed signs of his split personality pitching. We all know and have seen what Liriano is capable of when he controls his pitches on a consistent basis. The Twins desperately need Liriano to pitch to his good potential. I honestly believe that this is exactly what will happen this season. We will be able to say good bye to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and embrace the consistent lefty ace he's capable of being. Today, he showed he's on track. I know it's just preseason, but this is what the preseason is for. Carry on my wayword son.
