Unfortunately you can't take out that 5th inning from his stats when he is in your starting lineup!!!

True, but hopefully they can go back and see what happened that inning compared to the innings he was great in and make the proper adjustments. Also, he realy utilized his fastball more today which is good. I'd still like to see Rivera or Q catch him every start though.

Well, whatever he can do to correct it but so far nothing is working and like all young pitchers, he lacks consistency...

Yeah except for those 5 runs he gave up he pitched a great game...please.

I find it amusing to see how long before the majority of people finally cut bait on this bozo. He was a mistake. Past time to admit it and move on. People keep running him out there for more damage to the ratios as if next time will be different. Like next time Lucy will not pull the football away as Charlie Brown goes to kick it...like Adrian Beltre will revert to his roid induced, contract year 40+ homer form any day now?

This could be the worst statement I've ever heard. Felix is 20 years old. He could not be as good as advertised until he's age 26 and still be a stud. Its hilarious and stupid that people want to give up on a player that is only 20 with his potential. He has better stuff than Liriano & Hamels put together and both are older than Felix. He's 20!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which matters not in fantasy. What he does this year and maybe the next 2 if you are in a keeper is all a fantasy owner should be concerned with. If you think he will not be good until he is 26, then you are saying he is indeed dog excriment and should be floating on the waiver wire of every league as no one looks out past 3 years in even in a keeper league.

No, I actually think he'll turn it around, a change in catchers would help. But I was just making the point that he's 20 and still has a long great career ahead of him barring injuries.

I honestly doubt switching catchers would help at all... His problems are related to mechanical problems which may be difficult to fix in a short period of time.

As far as injuries are concerned, it's tough to predict but he is not in a safe zone due to his young age. Plus his less than ideal mechanics may result in some arm related injuries in the future.
