  1. Maybe a move to the bullpen would help.

    He just went on the DL with a tired arm. Hopefully he can regain something in 2010.

  2. While I agree, you’re missing the difference between his FA and FT, and his Fastball velocity has declined due to the addition of a FT.

    The problem with Liriano, which backs up your point, is that when he overthrows, he comes crashing back down.

    While it’s counterintuitive, I think his inability to dominate with his slider has effected his fastball.

  3. Oh yeah, good point about the two seam fastball being responsible for the drop in velocity.
