Game Number 2: The Misery Continues

Well, this is certainly a poor start to the season. I’m not too worried about two losses. What I am worried about is this:

Liriano Fastballs, 2008-2011

It looks like Liriano had less fastball velocity yesterday than at any point last season–he looked closer to the bad Liriano from the injury-recovery season of 2009. I’m not going to come to any firm conclusions until we see a few more starts–the fastball speed may pick up as the season progresses, or it may be that this is related to some kind of pitch f/x calibration issue. But it’s certainly something to keep an eye on.
