Know Thine Enemy: Royals Review

It's actually been a bit weekend in Twins Territory for news. A roster change or two, a contract extension...it's like November in June! Or July!

W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Francisco Liriano 2-7 17 12 0 0 0 0 71.1 64 44 42 7 40 70 5.30 1.46

Liriano's 2.47 ERA in his last six starts is a long way from the 9.45 ERA in his first six. The better he pitches, the more people will talk about him being traded. I'm not sure if he actually will be dealt, unless the front office truly believes he won't be or doesn't want to be a part of their future, but it sure as hell will be talked about.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Bruce Chen 7-6 17 16 0 0 0 0 89.1 93 47 45 10 19 64 4.53 1.25

Chen has been consistently not terrible for his entire career. He's also been consistently a thorn in the Minnesota offense's side over the last couple years. It'd be really nice to break that recent theme.
