The once and future King Felix

Postby johnsamo » Tue Aug 29, 2006 5:17 pm

For anybody who caught last night's game, it was something to see. The Angels, even in their one loss, were hitting the Yanks pretty good but Felix was dealing. A lot of single digit pitch count innings, lots of easy first or second pitch contact outs, and even late in the game, raring back occassionally and blowing a 99 fastball by good fastball hitters. He made the Angels look like a minor league team. I saw him pitch a few months ago and was already pretty high on his future, but last night was even a bigger tease for what this guy can do in the years to come.

Kelvim Escobar looked great too, but he's the most snakebit guy I've seen in a while. With just good defense and run support, he's pitched well enough to be nearing 20 wins. The guy pitched a complete game, giving up two runs, one a freakish play, and he still loses. He's had a lot of losses like that. Even his few bad games where he gets rocked early, he usually battles through and goes 6 or 7 and keeps the team in the game. He's one of those guys who's earning his salary but can't get any help. Its as if the Angels hate him or something. They're gloves develop holes, they can't hit, it's just ridiculous the number of games he should've won but didn't.
