View Full Version : Some interesting starts coming up this week

08-06-2006, 09:59 AM
Mike Smith versus Odalis Perez (can Royals beat Twins just once?)
Jason Johnson versus JP Howell (over/under must be around 15)


Liriano versus Miner in first start after "injury"
and one of these teams has to lose...that much is guaranteed


Vazquez versus Big Unit...will Javier continue his progress or return to norm?


Verlander versus Contreras...first game of a huge match-up, with two aces on the mound and Verlander also having skipped a start due to fatigue

Twins Win

I don't think theres anything really wrong with Liriano. At least I haven't much around heree. The Twins have always been very careful with their young pitchers. If they have any discomfor they will miss a start. It's part of the reason why Garza hasn't come up yet, not because of an injury but they watch their young pitchers very close. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't bring him up this year. They want to make 100% sure he's ready for the big leagues.
