Felix watching

The Mariners have the day off, it’s supposed to be a nice day, and King Felix is taking the hill in Cheney Stadium tonight.

Seriously, you have no excuses. Get thee to Tacoma tonight. 6:05 pm Pacific time first pitch.

    “I asked the guy next to me if it was Doyle and of course he didn’t know what I was talking about — it actually took me a second to remember his real name.”

    LOL. It’s bad enough that the typical fan thinks we’re stat geeks; now they think we have a whole different language for the players’ names!

    For a good example of how good intentions about pitch counts do not always prevail at the major league level, see last night’s Angels’ game. The Angels let top pitching prospect Ervin Santana throw 115 pitches to complete a shutout, even though he missed almost all of last year with shoulder and elbow problems.

    I would not necessarily trust Hargrove in the same situation with Hernandez. I have no problem delaying his debut until after the All-Star break or initially pitching him out of the bullpen to conserve his innings pitched (which is exactly what the Twins did with another Santana a few years ago).

    Boo, Rob Neyer!

    Dan (England): When McCarthy was 19 he was in Arizona League Rookie Ball, at 19, Felix, is running an ERA of under 3 with a strikeout per inning in AAA. McCarthy hasn’t exactly done a lot in the majors so to rate him higher is a massive stretch.

    SportsNation Rob Neyer: (2:12 PM ET ) Ryan Anderson.

    There is no reason–none whatsoever–to care about what Rob Neyer has to say anymore. He’s completely irrelevant.

    Wow, when you put it that way, it’s been quite the dropoff, hasn’t it?
