  • Felix Hernandez pitched well on Thursday, but took a tough loss despite allowing just two runs over seven innings while striking out six against the Red Sox.
    Advice: This is two-of-three starts for Felix that have looked like the King version, with a stinker in the middle against the Rays on Saturday. He had his good curve going, and he kept Boston off-balance with his change. Unfortunately, David Price was better. Even with the strong start his ERA sits at 5.44, but he's pitched better than that of late. He'll try to make it three-of-four quality starts against the Yankees on Wednesday in New York.
  • Felix Hernandez surrendered six runs (five earned) on seven hits over three innings in Saturday's loss to the Rays.
    Advice: Hernandez jumped in the time machine to fire off eight innings of one-run ball against these same Rays last time out, but it was a different story completely on Saturday afternoon. A Matt Duffy RBI double in the first inning was just a taste of what was to follow for King Felix, who proceeded to cough up three more runs in the second inning and two more in the third before he was mercifully replaced by Roenis Elias to open the fourth inning. Time has hit the former Cy Young winner hard -- as it will hit all of us hard in due time -- and he's now the owner of a bloated 5.70 ERA and 1.38 WHIP. It's not going to get any easier next time out, when he helps play host to the Red Sox.
