No sp is probably feeling 100% after 97 pitches. If Felix asked to be taken out, that is infortunate. A true horse needs the mindset to go 9. McLaren is still the boss. He could have asked, or told Felix, try to give me more.
felix has had injury problems in the past, its his second start of the season and hes thrown 100 pitches... if hes asking to be taken out (which i would guess is pretty rare) then take him out and don't risk him overexerting and hurting him... i'm upset about not getting the win too but the bullpen should be able to go an inning without giving up a couple of runs
