Crystal Ball Review: Francisco Liriano

2006 CB (posted September 11, 2005)
32 games, 27 starts, 8-8, 157 innings, 122/68 K/BB, 4.59 ERA.

2006 Actual
28 games, 16 starts, 12-3, 121 innings, 144/32 K/BB, 2.16 ERA

2006 CB Normalized for Actual Pitching Time
6-6, 121 innings, 94/52 K/BB, 4.59 ERA

COMMENTARY:
Obviously a massive miss. I thought Liriano would have some control problems and be average overall. Instead his command was very good, and he was the best pitcher in the American League until he got hurt.
