King felix pushed back again.......

I am willing to think that maybe the M's are just being extra careful with him. Besides, with this time off, he won't have to worry about fading late in the season.

It is frustrating but I have no problem with them being careful with Felix. But, there better not be another pushback!! I am banking on him starting the 15th.

I just read this on espn

Pete Becker: (3:51 PM ET ) Junior Felix? Wow, haven't heard that name in a while. I think he finished his career in Japan. Oh, you mean KING Felix? (I know. I slay me.) I don't like it. I don't like it at all. When there's a setback with an elbow, it's not good. It means rest and rehab isn't working. It means the symptoms are still there and there's got to be a cause for them. That's my take, anyway. Again, not a doctor, no medical training. But I've spoken to a professional sports therapist about it -- she has terrific credentials -- and based on general symptoms, she doesn't like the sound of it either.

Here's the Sportsline update, he pitched the sim game today:

Felix Hernandez (forearm, elbow) reported feeling fine after his 50-pitch simulated game on Tuesday. "(Tuesday), I feel pretty good," Hernandez told MLB.com. "(Wednesday), I'll feel even better, I think."

Something's up. Putz had an elbow strain during ST and they didn't push him back at all. I know they want to be careful but Bravasi needs Felix on the mound or else he is fired. So he would want him out there asap but he is obviously not 100% even though he keeps saying he is fine. That's my conspiracy theory anyway. :-D

A comment from the anti-conspiracy perspective (sportsline):

News: Felix Hernandez (forearm, elbow) reported feeling fine after his 50-pitch simulated game on Tuesday. "(Tuesday), I feel pretty good," Hernandez told MLB.com. "(Wednesday), I'll feel even better, I think."

Analysis: Barring any setbacks, Hernandez will come off of the 15-day disabled list and re-join the rotation on May 15 against the Angels. He has been on the DL since April 19 with a strained right elbow.

Him feeling "pretty good" doesn't give me a warm fuzzy. I'll feel better after he does well his first start back.
