    He is having a seat in lieu of Alex Burnett.

    Wait, six shutout innings by Liriano? Say it ain't so! How many Ks?

    I think there's a good chance we'll see Butera behind the plate for Liriano's next start.

    I hope that you are correct. They seem to have made a good connection today.

    Absolutely. I'll take an 0-3 from the 8-hitter if it means 6 shutout innings from the starter.

    Astonishing

    I'd say this was astonishing, but you never know with this guy. Good to see, tho'.

    As long as Mauer is the DH and not 1B where he has a .569 OPS this year. I'd prefer to not have a negative WAR at 1B and C everytime Liriano pitches.

    It was a great win today and nice series sweep. I know the A's are not a good team, we've got to start some where. There were several positives to take from Liriano's outing: good velocity, nice break on his slider, better mechanics for the most part, and not imploding at the first sign of adversity. Let's hope this continues.
