Frankie strikes back

Now THAT is what I had in mind for the Pirates when they returned for a long homestand – not that messy Twins series. The Pirates were absolutely dominant this weekend. The Pirates had more runs (21) this series than the #Mets had hits (20). — Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) May 24, 2015 #Pirates starters — Cole, Burnett and Liriano — struck out 32 hitters and allowed...

Game 39: Twins 8 Pirates 5

After spending the better part of a week thinking about Francisco Liriano, worrying about Francisco Liriano, and fighting with people on the internet about Francisco Liriano, Liriano went out and laid a gigantic egg against his old team last night. The thing that is probably most relevant about Liriano’s season to this point is this: Liriano has given up eight home runs in 47 2...

Liriano’s loss

Francisco Liriano was flat-out terrible on Tuesday night, and that’s really all you need to know about this one. His location was nonexistent and when he did find the zone, the Twins hammered him. Two innings, 8 runs, that’s that. I don’t know if it’s really time to be significantly worried about Frankie – as bad as this one was, it’s one start, it happens once in a long...

What sort of year is Francisco Liriano having?

It’s relatively easy to figure out how the season is going for 80% of the rotation. Gerrit Cole has been fantastic, and he’s closer than ever to finally breaking out and living up to that “1-1″ tag the Pirates put on him four years ago. AJ Burnett is revitalized with the Pirates, throwing strikes and getting ground balls again, even if his ERA is probably coming back to earth...

Minnesota Twins set to face an old friend

Francisco Liriano is a name that no Minnesota Twins fan will forget for a very long time. Liriano was not anything special on paper when you look back on what he did with the organization at the Major League level.  In parts of seven seasons with the team, the Dominican Republic native posted a 50-52 record with a 4.33 ERA.  But he really was something special despite mediocre...
