Does anyone really think, after the sample size we have, that Liriano will ever be "mentally comfortable"? I sure don't. He's proven time and again that when it counts, he struggles mightily, and usually fails, to keep it together. He should have been traded on any number of occasions over the past few years. I fear that now it's too late, and we'll continue to see this production out of him throughout 2012 and he'll sign on a minor league deal with another team next year and, probably, fade away completely. Bummer.
