Examining the Night & Day Performances of Blue Jays’ Francisco Liriano

JAYS FROM THE COUCH COMPARES THE LAST TWO STARTS BY FRANCISCO LIRIANO WHO HAS BEEN UP AND DOWN THUS FAR FOR THE BLUE JAYS.

Obtaining the services of Francisco Liriano at this year’s MLB Trade Deadline, took us all by surprise. Not only was he a guy who was not in the rumor mill, but he wasn’t necessarily a guy who fans dreamed of. In fact, after the trade broke, we sat down with Jason Rollison of Pirates Breakdown to hear what we could expect from Liriano. During Episode 85 of the Jays Nest Podcast, Jason didn’t really have a lot of positive things to get us excited about the 32 yr old Dominican lefty.

 

Basically, the scoop was that Liriano will be hot and cold. One night, he’ll show flashes of brilliance, the next he’ll have seemingly forgotten where the strike zone is. I bring this up because his tenure in Toronto has been exactly as advertised. Most recently, he was great against the Cleveland Indians, which came as a surprise after he was not so great in his start before that against the Houston Astros. I wanted to look into the difference(s) between the two starts to see if there was a rhyme or reason.
