Rangers 3, Mariners 2 -- another Felix Hernandez gem is wasted

brightcove.createExperiences(); Note: I was reminded that videos can only be around two minutes in length.  So the starting pitching showdown was overshadowed by a ninth inning meltdown and a Felix Hernandez's gem of a starting performance results in a no decision for him and a loss for the Mariners.  If it feels like you've heard this story before, you have. I've written it before. The names are just different. Brad Miller made a costly error and closer Fernando Rodney struggled with his command, wild pitching the tying run across the plate and giving...

Let's follow along with a running diary. First inning You certainly have to expect a low-scoring game.

Marquee match-up looms Wednesday: Hernandez vs. Darvish

  ARLINGTON, Texas — Listen to the principals involved, Felix Hernandez and Yu Darvish, and their marquee pitching match-up Wednesday  night isn’t anything special. “Is that a big deal?” asked Hernandez, the Mariners’ long-time ace. “I’ve just got to do my job.

Felix Hernandez changes up his pitch mix

One of my favorite things about King Felix is that he's constantly improving. And when I say constantly, I mean "right now". This is a table. King Felix K/9 BB/9 2008 7.85 3.59 2009 8.18 2.68 2010 8.36 2.52 2011 8.55 2.58 2012 8.65 2.17 2013 9.51 2.03 Mar/Apr 2014 12.66 0.84 Now, the fact that a small-sample-size caveat needs to be slapped on this is so obvious that I won't even spend a whole sentence on it, but that's a pretty impressive trend. Felix is so much fun, you guys. So much fun that, despite the fact he's only pitched in three games, I'm going to spend this...
