How will King Felix do this upcoming season, being all of 27 years old when the 2014 season gets underway. Predicted numbers please...thanks.

He'll have a very good season in terms of era, but probably an okay season in terms of W-L due to the fact that the Mariners have an awful offense. In my professional opinion, I'd say that he'll hover around a 3-3.5 ERA, and have a record of around 13-10.

It feels like this guy has been around forever, yet he is only 27. He's got a lot of mileage on that arm though, and I will not be drafting him like a top 3 pitcher this year. If he falls to me, sure, but I can think of about 7 other guys I'd rather have IMO

And we've seen a proclamation from the poster that Justin Morneau is a 2nd or 3rd rounder in 2014 and Alfonso Soriano should play 2B for the Yanks this coming season.

I'm working on gathering info on what it takes to become a certified "professional".

However, now with the Cano signing, I think he loses more games 2-1 now instead of 2-0. Bump him up your draft board accordingly.

Is the back injury that plagued his 2nd half not an issue anymore?

He's always drafted as a top 3 or top 5 pitcher and there's just always other guys I like ahead of him. This year is the same as ever. He's good and safe but his WHIP's are usually slightly high for a top 5 pitcher investment. It's nitpicking but thats what you do when you have so many other equivalent options.

I've had him for years in my keeper league and keep planning to deal him. It's so rare that a pitcher goes through his career without an arm issue, and I just feel like he's due for something soon.

Well, he's clearly my favorite player - just check the screenname! Mileage is an issue - while he's only 27, he's had a lot of work, and his delivery involves some torque before approaching the plate, so hopefully that doesn't lead to more back/oblique issues. Those being the negatives, Felix has a ton of fluidity in his delivery, even with the hitch it looks like he is not stressing his arm unduly. Also, even when dealing with lower velocity (as has been the case in patches over the last couple years, though he still can run it up in spots) the guy is just a phenomenal tactician with his pitches. He works every area of the zone, and truly is a master of his craft - as HOF inductee Greg Maddux showed, it isn't all about gunning it in at 98+. I'd rank him behind Kershaw, but if you take him as the 2nd SP off the board, no argument here (though I do like the NL guys like Strasburg who don't face a DH).

I have a feeling that the Mariners are going to be next in the line of the 2012 Marlins, 2013 Blue Jays. Spend a lot of money and put some big names on paper, but the season falls apart quickly. He'll be the Mariners version of Josh Johnson and RA Dickey. Felix is much better than either of them and I don't think his numbers will be horrible, but definitely not what we've become used to from King Felix.

With that being said, he's one of the few non-Rangers in the AL west that I root for. An easy guy to like.

Well the thing here is the King finally has some mates to believe in. So there maybe be an extra motivation for him to lead this team and step up his game.

The positive side of that is he gets his 2nd Cy Young.

The negative side of that is he presses and gets hurts or struggles.

Personally, I am thinking/hoping he goes for a career year (and all his dynasty league owners can sell high in going into 2015).

Big names. No big names. The Mariners always fall apart. Nothing new. But Felix keeps on delivering no matter what. I'd don't see his ERA and WHIP that high. He and Chris Sale both pitch on terrible teams. It is their bad fate karma or something. I don't care, I'll get Wins elsewhere. Just keep giving me strikes, ERA and WHIP. For those with him in leagues with QS, an extra bonus.

He's already had a pretty similar year, and the defense behind him(besides cano) is going to be pretty pathetic. Especially if they sign Cruz and put either Hart/Cruz in the field. The alternative is Smoak at 1st with Hart DH, and that's equally crappy defenisvely. If they do sign Cruz then you've got 2 of Hart/Smoak/Cruz in the field instead of 1, and they're all bad defensively. Of course errors won't factor into his ERA, but not all bad defensive plays are errors.

I'm thinking this is the year when he finally starts to show some wear, and pitches through some lingering issues/rough starts with a 15 day DL stint thrown in there. Thus the 207IP instead of his usual 230ish IP.

If you take him as the 2nd SP off the board, the rest of your league will love you long time.

Well it sounds like everyone thinks hes going to start to lose something or that his back will still be an issue. Not trying to make this about me but as someone who has him on one of his teams do you think i should try to deal him for someone not ranked as high but with a better team behind him?

Overrated/overdrafted. Going by ESPN (because that's where I play so I can only go by that), he's ranked 29th; that's 3rd round in 10 or 12 team leagues. Let's take King Felix's number in the past 3 seasons and compare them to a guy like James Shields (who's ranked 83):

Felix:
39-33, 3.20 ERA, 661 Ks, 1.166 WHIP, in 670 IP.
Shields:
44-31, 3.15 ERA, 644 Ks, 1.146 WHIP, in 705 IP.

I probably wouldn't waste a 3rd round pick on Felix, which is what you will likely have to pay for him.
