08:23 AM ET 03.05 | So far, so good with Francisco Liriano. This season, Liriano will determine whether he's going to become Rich Frankie. He's due to become a free agent after the season. At his best, he's a lefthander with a diving slider capable of striking out 201 batters in 191 innings, as he did in 2010. At his worst, he's a mechanical mess. ... I asked [Ron Gardenhire] if he's figured out Liriano after six years together. "Have you?" Gardenhire shot back, with a smile on his face. No. "I'm no different than you," Gardenhire said. "It's a confidence thing with him. If he gets a little confused out there at times, that's when he starts to search to find things, that's when you see him really scuffle."

Gardenhire isn't sure about what type of sandwich he's eating later.

Dang, what a shame. A great Liriano -- even a good Liriano -- would have helped the Twins tremendously. Baseball is the poorer without a strong, competitive team in places like Minnesota.

Liriano sounds like a box of chocolates to me.
