  1. R.I.P.
  2. Ok, quick notes: First off, he looked really, really good. Perfect through four innings, and the walk he gave up (which came around to score the only run) he was totally squeezed on. It was pretty awful, the umpiring (I thought he got squeezed the whole game, but this PA was just awful). His command was sharp. More importantly, his mechanics looked synchronized and in-line; they definitely didn't the start before. His velocity was more 90-92, whereas it had mostly been 88-89 the start before. His curve had good break in both starts, but he commanded it way better in the second. His signature changeup was a non-entity in the first start, but looked good in the second. He really looked like a different pitcher.

  3. Sat pretty close to right behind the plate for yesterday's start, and I'll post some notes soon. He looked really sharp. But first...I have audio from his in-game Q+A (journalist perks!) with myself and a couple other media members that I wouldn't mind sharing with you guys. Anyone know how I can do that?
  4. Haven't gotten a chance to look into this start at all and didn't get to watch it (was watching Felix in Tacoma - which I'll be posting about at some point today), so not sure if anything looked different for him. I wouldn't worry TOO much though. It's a crazy year for pitching and he's been relatively consistent (in comparison to the rest of the SP crowd). But again, the only thing I know about yesterday's start was the box score.
  5. Yep, I was chatting with a friend the day he got called up about how I hope they didn't ruin him by calling him up too soon, and that's exactly what happened.
  6. Unless Dusty Baker switches brains with Hurdle.
  7. I don't think you know what short-sighted means.... But yeah, that's got to sting.
  8. I get the hesitation about a GB/non-K closer, but Neshek is an extreme flyball guy.
  9. Ended up going 2 IP, 50 pitches
  10. After the game he said he felt good, but that his mechanics were just off. I asked him what about his mechanics was off, and he said "Everything was off. The timing. The turn. My arm. Everything was off." He expects to make another rehab start on Sunday and make his return to the Mariners during the June 16-18 series against Texas. Watching his innings, he was clearly right about his mechanics being off, but really it looked like the same mechanical issue that's plagued him for more than a year now, so I don't have much faith he will be able to correct it and get right again. His fastball had movement but he had no ability to locate it and served up some meatballs. He was throwing 88-91, but he did touch 92 once or twice. His offspeed stuff had good movement, but he really struggled to locate the change. I've defended Felix longer than most, but I honestly think he's done. I've said for a while that the only thing as a Mariners fan that will sadden me as much as when Ichiro was traded is the day I realize Felix is done. Yesterday was that day.
  11. Overheard the media coordinator telling someone over the phone that they're thinking 4 innings or 65 pitches for Felix (well, presumably he was talking about Felix, although he didn't explicitly say his name)
  12. Making a rehab start tonight. I'll be at the game, probably will sit behind the plate for at least an inning or two. I'll let you know how he looks
  13. Same. He's got good stuff from everything I've read.
  14. Always. Start. Your. Studs.
