    I don't get it. How many times does Liriano have to show that he is not 'fixable', before people stop thinking that he can return to 2006 form or even sniff what he was in 2010? He is comparable to...

    Casilla, during that time, was showing a lot of promise to become a competent middle infielder. That has since changed, but I think many people thought that Casilla had a huge upside before Hardy...

    Wow. That's a lot of jing for a guy fresh off of TJ.
    And why would he be on the Cub's short list?

    Good for him! I hope the Marlins don't gut the team and at least give him a chance.

    I wonder sometimes if they don't audition some of these guys in September with high hopes for increasing their stock as trade bait.

    So maybe a Pavano lookalike (when at his best - think 2010) or a touch better, if only because of some consistency. Not a true number 1, but mid to top of the rotation guy. 60% wins, 3.7+/- era and...

    I kept getting sucked into that every other year...

    He was also very good in 2008, 2010 and a decent chuck of the Twins season (when they brought him back up from the pen)

    I don't think he is going to post a sub 3 ERA and a 10k/9 2.5 BB rate like...

    How many years after the great season (2006) have to pass before people stop thinking that Liriano can replicate that success? Six? Eight?
    His best days are gone. No reason to think that he can get...

    Interesting question.
    I think it’s more of a frustration, as both a Twins fan, and a baseball fan, of not being on even playing field with the Yankees. Whatever the reasons.

    A couple of years ago at ST, we saw Gibson pitch an inning or two. Although a little raw, he attacked the strike zone in a way that I haven't seen another Twin pitcher do in a long time. I really...

    I am curious about the Vavra (infield) and Ullger (outfield) pedigrees for their new positions. It lends itself to having one full time and one part time hitting coach if Vavra stays at the major...

    You have to wonder sometimes if a different "look" might be part of the answer.
    Easy to say that 'we' could go out and get Francona, but why in the world would he want to come here? Until some arms...

    I don't think there is that much risk to it. Anybody can get hurt, and the veteran work ethic might be something that the youger kids should be exposed to. He has earned it from my viewpoint. And it...
