Off the Wall: Felix’s ROY Chances
Word is that the Mariners have a highly regarded rookie pitcher who shares a first name with a once-famous cat.
Now, I’m just a simple man who enjoys working with hands, so I don’t know much about this “Felix” character. I don’t even know much about cats. Except that they are supposed to like sardines. I like sardines.
Apparently, someone else does know about Felix, someone who writes for something called the “Post-Intelligencer,” and whose name is “Derek.”
One time, I went to the sea lion caves. I fed the seals sardines. The sardines were wrapped in a newspaper. I don’t know if it was the Post-Intelligencer or not.
In this article, Derek covers Felix’s chances to win something called the “Rookie of the Year Award,” which are higher than you might think at first.
This linked article might not a novel, but it is a well-told story. I like my well-told stories with numbers, hold the sardines.
