Game 10, Twins at Mariners
Happy Felix day! Carlos Silva represents the opposition tonight.
Autopilot Hargrove uses the same line-up as always. Broussard in for Guillen in right field. If you’re ever going to put Broussard out there, do it with Felix on the mound, because he’s not going to get many chances.
So, Felix Day #3. The last two starts, I had a feeling we were going to see something special. Tonight – I’m kind of worried, to be honest. Not in a “I think he’s going to get shelled” kind of way, but in a “he’s going to give up runs eventually” kind of way. And, if Felix has a weakness, its still left-handed hitters, and the Twins have a couple of the best in Mauer and Morneau. It’s not hard to turn on a fastball and pull it down the right field line at Safeco, so if Felix gives up a home run and raises his ERA all the way to 0.74 or something, I won’t be shocked.
Of course, I also won’t be shocked if he strikes out all 27 guys he faces. He’s Felix. Anything’s possible. Either way, Felix Day is appointment TV, and you couldn’t pry me away from this game with an army of chariots and swarms of locusts. I love Felix Day.
