I saw that linked somewhere else last week, but yah, it is good. My favorite paragraph in it is:

The Mariners, in all their wisdom, however, have decided that every pitcher’s best pitch is their fastball, and they’re going to have Felix feature his fastball early in the ballgame to “set up the offspeed stuff.” Yet, for some reason, they have yet to realize the correlation between “first inning, establish fastball” and “first inning, Felix lit up like Christmas tree.”

I'm certainly feeling better about Felix, but still not sure I trust starting him against the better teams right now.

I think he'll be much better than he's been thus far. I too read that article and found it interesting. There may be something to that minute study, the author did on Felix. But, Felix is young, and will probably be inconsistent as most young pitchers are.

I just traded him and Prince for Burrell and Cliff Lee, I had enough of hoping he'll turn it around. Plus there are still concerns about Seattle shutting him down in September, cuz they don't want him to pitch too many innings.

I think he will be a good big league pitcher. But everyone had to high expectation for him. they thought that he would just take the elague by storm, and young pitchers are going to have their struggles.
