Did Liriano's injury or the Twins changing his delivery diminish his effectiveness?
What happened to Frankie Franchise from 2006 that had a 2.16 ERA, 12 Wins, 4.1 WAR, and "Wowed" us with his 93-95 mph fastball and 88 mph slider? Did his injury or Tommy John Surgery change his motion, delivery, arm speed, mental makeup, or something else that has left him varying between effective and very hittable? Or did the Twins trying to smooth out his violent pitching motion after surgery change one of the aforementioned components of pitcher's motion. Either way, something has changed with Francisco, and I don't believe he will ever come close to 2006 again.
Can Liriano "WOW" us again like 2006? Can he throw that upper 80's slider again that made even the best hitters look foolish?
