Tonight's start wasn't very helpful, but it wasn't very hurtful either. Eventually he'll get it going and hopefully his starts will end at the appropriate time.
Finally someone with some real analysis of the situation. Let's face it, that idiot at the helm in Seattle is no Bobby Cox when dealing with his pitchers, or hitters for that matter. I've watched every single one of his games this year and this is at least the 3rd or 4th time where I myself was calling for Felix to be pulled.
Sorry to all the M's fans, but that whole organization, from upper management down to the field boss are totally pathetic. They'd rather play old, over-paid veterans like Vidro rather than giving everyday at-bats to guys like Clement and Balentein. I mean seriously, WTF do you have to lose. As soon as Clement starts to get into a little bit of a groove, they send him down.
I'm sorry, but at some point that whole deficient offense and pathetic management has to wear on a guy like Felix. I'm not saying he doesn't give up dumb walks or loses control out there at times, but his manager does absolutely nothing to help the kid out.
2 hits through seven innings and all that offense could muster up for him is 1 run. What a joke.....
