It's understandable why people may be skeptical as to whether or not Liriano has indeed regained his top-of-the-rotation form. Folks want to see more -- like a "prove it" game of HORSE.
But just ask Cleveland Indians leadoff hitter Asdrubal Cabrera (who may still be depressed about his embarrassing, game-changing error from last night) what he thinks of Liriano tonight. Cabrera swung and missed at a strike-three slider in the first inning that fell off an imaginary table, and he appeared to be mumbling to himself on the way back to the dugout.
Liriano's stuff is back. It's all mental from this point forward.
Liriano struck out the side in the first inning, and with Cleveland's offense unable to break a piñata so far this season, this could be shaping up as another gem.
