On the heels of Felix Hernandez’s 13th victory, one that should improve his AL Cy Young chances considerably, Matthew over at SB Nation’s Lookout Landing writes that tonight is as good a night as any to give thanks to King Felix.
By all accounts, Felix Hernandez is on his way to finish at least third in the Cy Young race and might be the favorite to take home the bacon and the actual non-bacon trophy. It’s been a fantastic ride to watch him mature from the 16-year-old in Everett to the 24-year-old we saw before us tonight.
Were it not for the extension signed this past winter, Felix would be a lot more expensive to ink to a contract. That would be bad for the team’s future.
Were it not for the extension signed this past winter, the trade rumors swirling around Felix right now would be insane. That would be really bad for us fans.
Indeed. All of the Cy Young talk for Felix Hernandez has been well-earned.
