Found August 05, 2012 on IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
This is what we know. Ellen Degeneres will never eat at Chick fil-A. Dick Cheney will never die. And the Yankees will never score a run off Felix Hernandez. Ever. The world will end first. The big bang will run its course, time and space will begin to contract, and all matter - except for Dick Cheney - will be repressurized into a spec that is roughly the size of Rupert Murdoch's heart. And we will still be looking to score one run - just one - off King Felix.That's OK. Dominating pitchers come and go. Frank Larry used to be known as "the Yankee Killer." The 1961 Yankees, greatest team ever, couldn't hit him with tennis rackets. We've seen Koufax, Gibson, McLain, Palmer, Clemens, blahblahblah all the way to Cliff Lee and Verlander... and now this: King Felix, who not only shuts us out, but hits Arod and puts him out for six weeks.In that sense, we should be grateful about yesterday's shutout: Felix didn't put anybody on the DL for a month.But there&...

Mariners 1, Yankees 0

Felix Hernandez dominated the Yankees in their own ballpark again, pitching his third shutout of the season to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 1-0 win on a sunny, sticky Saturday afternoon. Hernandez outpitched Hiroki Kuroda in a duel of pitchers who haven't lost since June. Mike Carp hit an RBI single in the second inning for Seattle, which bounced back from having its seven...

BP Unfiltered: Efficient Felix by Ben Lindbergh

On Saturday afternoon, Felix Hernandez shut out the Yankees at Yankee Stadium, allowing two hits and two walks and striking out six. That in itself is a very impressive achievement, given that the Yankees have scored the third-most runs per game in baseball this season, and also given that Yankee Stadium is not a particularly pleasant place to pitch. (The Yankees had averaged over...

The Quiet Performance Of Hiroki Kuroda

When Felix Hernandez throws a 1-0, complete game, two-hit shut-out, that is about all you’ll hear about from that game. However, if you look at who threw against Hernandez you’ll find that Hiroki Kuroda held his own against the former Cy Young winner. Kuroda went 6 and 1/3 scattering 7 hits while giving up only 1 run. Kuroda walked just one Mariner while striking out four demonstrating...

Stand by Your Man

In Sunday’s 6-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners, Ichiro got plunked in the back of the knee in the fifth inning on a 2-2 pitch from Hishashi Iwakuma. It was the second time Mariner pitchers hit Ichiro in six games between them (Felix Hernandez hit him in the same game in Seattle that he hit Jeter and put A-Rod on the DL with a broken hand). So that’s twice Seattle pitchers...

King Felix rules over Yankees in shutout victory

NEW YORK -- One pitch after the other would dart around the strike zone, leaving one New York Yankees batter after the other dragging himself back to the dugout with a combination of frustration and awe. At any time, the Yankees' intimidating lineup seemingly provided a threat in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Seattle Mariners, with Yankee Stadium's invitingly short right...
