Liriano Expectations and other notes

By AH Staff

Fransisco Liriano only got two outs before being pulled from the game on Thursday afternoon. It seems like everyone has different expectations for the pitcher this season. Without citing any sources, I'm going to go ahead and say that it takes a whole season of pitching to get back from a Tommy John surgery. My expectations of him this year are zero. I'm not going to make any judgments about his career on anything he does or doesn't do this season.

- Carlos Gomez hit his first and last home run as a Twin.
Way to go, GoGo.

- If I ever win the lottery, I am definitely going to buy this.

- The Twins extended their contract with triple-A affiliate Rochester Red Wings through 2010. How many past Twins Triple-A affiliates can you name?

- Alright Hamilton recently took the Blog Readability Test. Check it out:

Not surprising. Everyone who reads this blog is a Genius.

- Question of the day: Who the heck is Bobby Korecky?

-Joe Mauer's permanent residence is in Florida. He's a real Minnesotan.

I don't care what people say. I expected a 12-3 record for Liriano. Good thing: It's still possible.

let's see... I can remember Edmonton and Salt Lake City...but that's it for AAA affiliates.

Fort Wayne Wizards (I used to have a cool FWZ hat but left it somewhere).

Toldeo Mud Hens.

I think there was one out in California, too...the Visalia Twins.

I'm glad they are about to send him back down. I hope he pitches no more than 5 innings per game as well down there for the first couple months.

If I were a professional ball player I would wear my baseball uniform in my drivers license picture too...and every other minute of my life unless I was in the shower.

He is wise to excape the Minnesota state income taxes. I'm sure the state taxes will even go up next year when we have to start budgeting a WORLD SERIES PARADE EVERY YEAR!!!!!

I always assumed I was a genius. This makes it official.

why is there an old guy on mauers licence too? Is that like his Big Brother sponser or something?

Sid is throwin vs. the Twinkies tonight. I dont know if I like Ponson as much without the long-nasty hair though. He looks like he should be working at a bank or doing my taxes now.
