    Probably is.

    On the other hand, it's just one start.

    I hope you're kidding. You were singing your own praises the other day for predicting his downfall:

    Remember when I claimed that Francisco Liriano was overrated? Well look at his stats...

    Everyone laughed at me over the offseason when I claimed this. I told you all that this guy isn't anything special and that he is not a true ace.  Now bow down.

    Um...is this thread a joke SPC?  If so, I admire your sense of humor.  If not, then you're a flip-flopper of the highest level. 

    Also, I have to echo royf19.  It was only one start, and he walked six guys to get his no-no.  That's far from perfect.  I still think the guy is an ace, but something appears to be wrong with him either mechanically or physically.  When he's on, Liriano has excellent control.  This season, he's walked 6.61 per nine, while only striking out 5.51 per nine.  That's a far cry from the 3.47 K/BB ratio from 2010.

    Doc Ellis walked eight guys and hit a batter when he pitched his LSD no hitter. That was probably the sloppiest no hitter in baseball history:

    I can only remember bits and pieces of the game. I was psyched. I had a feeling of euphoria. I was zeroed in on the (catcher's) glove, but I didn't hit the glove too much. I remember hitting a couple of batters and the bases were loaded two or three times. The ball was small sometimes, the ball was large sometimes, sometimes I saw the catcher, sometimes I didn't. Sometimes I tried to stare the hitter down and throw while I was looking at him. I chewed my gum until it turned to powder. I started having a crazy idea in the fourth inning that Richard Nixon was the home plate umpire, and once I thought I was pitching a baseball to Jimi Hendrix, who to me was holding a guitar and swinging it over the plate. They say I had about three to four fielding chances. I remember diving out of the way of a ball I thought was a line drive. I jumped, but the ball wasn't hit hard and never reached me.[6]

    Good thing Liriano threw a no-no...he was in jeopardy of losing his spot in the rotation...so this performance last night provided him a stay of execution.

    Yep, and now the Sox have a chance to tee off on him next Monday, fresh off a 125+ pitch outing.
