King Felix's problem

Postby johnsamo » Tue Jul 04, 2006 12:12 am

Hargrove doesn't know that Felix's gas tank starts to drop at 90 pitches and is empty at 100. It's like clockwork. I haven't worked it out, but if you took out his stats after 90 pitches, I think he'd have an ERA two points lower than his ERA is.

HIs problem is going up against studs like Liriano and Weaver.

I thought people might still be blaming Jojima. :-°

Actually the numbers don't bear that out...it may be true as far as his stuff goes but he's not done badly after pitch 90.

Here's the breakdown:

Pitches 1-90: 5.11 ERA
Pitches 90+: 3.75 ERA

His WHIP is also lower.

King Felix is really Queen Felix. The guy was the most overhyped pile of crap there has been.

Wow...what happens in pitches 60-75???? That is quite an odd stat...10.05 ERA?! And his next highest during any pitch interval is about 5? Seems like the only problem is a lack of concentration...he just loses focus in the 4th or 5th inning.

I was at the game and the two innings he got into trouble he was getting the ball up. In fact, in the inning he gave up the ding dong to Morales (who was crushing the ball in BP) the batter before Felix threw two changeups that were above the batters head. I think he then went on to either walk or give up a bloop single putting a runner on for Morales. I remember thinking why don't they send out the pitching coach to settle him down and make sure he keeps the ball down. Wouldn't ya know it they didn't and he put a fastball a little up and over the plate and a 2Run HR.

Later on in his last inning again he threw a strange changeup (where it looks like he is falling off the mound) again that was over head high over the plate. He tried to get the ball down a couple times and bounced balls and then started the hit parade and his exit.

He was pretty dominant in the other innings with a low pitch count but started having control problems (and getting the ball up) in those two innings he gave up 2 runs.

Overall he is 8-8 with a K/inning and an ERA just under 5 which is not horrendously terrible and with a Blanton like second half I think Felix gets to something like 15-11 with a 4.00 ERA when all is said and done. Only 20 and once he clears the hump it's lights out for the next decade.

Weaver was oustanding last night as well, dominant control.

Again...I think its mental...you just described the pitch Morales hit as being up in the zone. I know its through a translator, but he doesn't seem to take responsibility for his mistakes and figure out how to improve. Here is his quote on that HR:

"The home run ball was a good pitch," said Hernandez, who struck out six in his 6 2-3 innings. "You can't control more than that. I got the pitch where I wanted it."
