Liriano headed to DL

6 posts in this topic

I heard them say something last night after the game and I about cried myself.

It's gonna be a tough go without him if he is indeed injured. Hopefully it is muscular and a few days off or stint on the 15 day will cure him for the stretch run and the Twins can keep it close. Guys need to really step up now.

They have no choice now but to call up Garza. If they don't, they are signaling defeat.

Good news is the the White Sox and Red Sox are all struggling in their owns ways. Neither team has the starting rotation playing well and we are only 1/2 game out right now. If we get Liriano back at all this year and Garza comes up and does what we all hope he can do we still have a chance. Even if Liriano is out the rest of the year I don't think we are dead in the water, it will be tougher and we need others to step up but I think it can still be done. But they need to be safe with Liriano, don't rush him. We need him for the next 5 years more then we need him for the next 7-8 weeks.

I am with you. Caution is the way to go with Liriano. We want him for a long time, not just for the Wild Card push of 2006.

Too bad. I wonder if he's going to have a lot of problems long-term with that violent motion of his. Part of the reason they were able to obtain him was his history of breaking down. You hate to tamper with that kind of "stuff" but it's obviously putting a lot of strain on his 22-year old arm, & his body isn't going to get any more resilient as he gets older.

Maximum12 is exactly right about the strain on a 22-year-old arm. You can't put the young guys into this kind of strain (of a full major-league season) too early in their careers. Which is why the young players need to spend some seasons in the minors.

Which is why it is entirely too early to call up Garza.

Maybe in September 2007, then give him a shot in 2008.
