Makes me feel a little better about owning King Felix, but I'm still a little concerned about how many innings/starts he will get from here on out. :-?

That depends a lot on how well Seattle does at staying in the race. They'll probably cut him off around the 190-200ip mark unless they're still in it...in that case he probably will get to go as long as they need him.

Yeah, I've been keeping a close eye on Seattle's situation, which isn't hard since I'm a Ranger fan. :-D

I can't believe Seattle's still in it to be honest. I hope for their sake they don't do something stupid at the deadline and try to make a deal for this year at the expense of the future. They don't have a legit shot at the division but they're close enough that they might think that they do.

I'm pretty surprised too, but the division is wide open as far as the standings go. A hot run by anyone right now would put them at a pretty big advantage to win the division.

This is where I cuss my Rangers for NOT getting Clemens, as I think with him, we win the division. :~(

The Rangers rotation is sneaky-good though right now. Millwood, Padilla and Eaton (if he's healthy) can all keep the team in the game. If the offense heats up those three should put them in a good spot to win the division. I thought Oakland or LAA would take it this year but honestly Oakland just doesn't look like they've got it this year and LAA doesn't have the offense to get it done (killing the DRays notwithstanding).

Sneaky-good is a great way to put our starting pitching. ;-D I liked the addition of Padilla, but didn't like dealing away Chris Young. However, without the Young trade, we wouldn't have Otsuka, and with Cordero stinking it up early in the year, we might have been in a world of trouble, so it seems a little better now.

If we could just prevent the random implosions from our starting pitching (or at least get fewer of them), that would be a great start. I really thought the bats would be alive by now, but with any luck, they will heat up any day now. :-)

Great read as usual, LL.

I'm curious what your research would reveal about Tom Glavine for the rest of the season? :-?

Here's my thoughts on Glavine and specifically Millwood versus Glavine
