I love how overrated Felix is.
I love how people forgot to watch how sick he was last year. If you don't think Felix can be a top 10 SP next year, you might be selling him short.
Explain how this is impossible?
Ok. Felix Hernandez is only pitching about 190 IP this year tops. He plays on a bad team, so his win total will be around 12. He's not a K an inning guy, so he'll have around o 160 K's at best. Hernandez wasn't unstoppable last year by any means, giving up 11 ERs in 10
IP in the middle of September.
I think Felix will do fine next year, in fact, I think he can be a top 20 SP (Though maybe a little less because of the bad win totatls he'll have.) But there is no value in Felix Hernandez as he's going too high in draft. It's almost impossible for him to exceed fantasy expectations, as the kid is being ranked 8th or 9th overall as an SP.
I'm not wasting my time on Felix unless he's around in the 7-8th, where he'll actually provide some value.
