And after the 1st 2 weeks of the season, the spot in order has little relevance on who you might face, as every teams rotation schedule has been altered by week 3, due to off days. Fantasy wise, it's a negative.
I disagree big time when considering that this is Felix Hernandez. The Mariners babied him last season. In 2006 they will not.
The early-season skips for the prototypical SP just may occur for him but once May rolls around the M's will ride him like a stallion, I believe, because he is too good to ignore. I am sure he'll get 30 starts and that is a positve in fantasy, not a negative.
He ain't Juan Dominguez, Josh Towers or Esteban Loiaza (all mediocre at best #5s). He's the Mariners best prospect.
