Over at fangraphs dave grewbulkowszki breaks down Francisco Liriano. He is pretty positive overall, expecting Liriano to put up numbers similar to a no. 3 starter. If you aren't interested in reading it here are a couple of outtakes: Back in 2006, Francisco Liriano pitched like a cyborg sent from the year 2009 to annihilate all American League Central competition. The Twins southpaw, just 22 at the time, snapped off mid-90’s gas, wicked high-80’s sliders and tumbling mid-80’s changeups. Entering 2010, Liriano is a fantasy conundrum. He’s still just 26, possesses a sinister slider and pulls the string on a plus changeup. Even if he were to make no substantial progress, Liriano would likely be a league-average starter next season with better luck.
