Francisco Liriano, rookie stud pitcher, made his return last night from a month on the DL with a ligament Francisco goes down.problem—only to have to come out of the game in the third inning. The AP’s snappy lead:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Francisco Liriano has heard plenty about Cy Young during a spectacular rookie season.

Now that he is out for the rest of the season, another pitcher might be entering the conversation — Tommy John.

Ouch. Liriano seemed fine until the third, when suddenly, he said, “I felt a pop and it really hurts.”

The Twins lost last night. This morning, they’re a game and a half up from the White Sox in the wild card race, and a game and a half behind the Tigers in the AL Central.

Liriano? Done for the season.

  1. Hah! Priceless.

    I had Pavano on my fantasy team ALL season. I must admit I was getting frustrated by the end of the year, but this makes it all worth it.

    Go get ’em kid. Long live hotties.

  2. Hey all – just wanted to stop by and thank you for the link. UmpBump is good in many ways.

    later on…
