His last time out, Liriano's one big inning against the Sox was the catalyst for what was ultimately the team''s defeat. He's straddled the line between effectively wild and simply wild this season, and it's never an easy thing to tell right off the bat. It seems like his control, or control of his lack of control, can come and go at any time. It could be a confidence issue, but I'm fairly certain it's just as much a mechanical issue. Cisco over-throws at times, and it gets him into trouble. It'd be nice to see him pull out a complete performance against a premier opponent today, a la Scott Baker last night.
