Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Apr 24

Felix Hernandez leads the way in a very favorable start against the Minnesota Twins. At the bottom is a Rangers reliever who’s not accustomed to starting games. Jon Lester at Cincinnati will be a big test, especially if Reds manager Bryan Price let’s Billy Hamilton play (which he didn’t in their matchup earlier this season). For you streamers, beware Scott Kazmir against...

Seattle Mariners: Starting rotation blues

It’s been a sluggish start to the season for the Seattle Mariners, coming out of the gates at 5-8.  For a team with high expectations in the preseason, it’s a little surprising.  What’s more surprising though than the slow start is the performance of the starting rotation.  Going into the third week of the season, only one starter has won a game.  Felix Hernandez, who has...

Hernandez strikes out 12 to carry Mariners past Rangers

  Knowing his ace had a sore quadriceps muscle and was nearing 100 pitches, six innings from Felix Hernandez was plenty for Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon. Hernandez had other ideas and won the debate with his manager this time. "I think it looks better, seven innings," Hernandez said with a grin. Hernandez struck out 12 and Mike Zunino's first home run of the season gave Seattle...

Seattle Mariners wrap up wild first week

It was a rocky start for a team projected to go far, but after a wild weekend with back-to-back extra inning wins the Seattle Mariners end their first week of the season at 3-3.  Felix Hernandez shined on Opening Day, and then it looked like the weight of expectations bogged down Seattle.  The Mariners dropped their next three games, getting shut out twice.  But they rebounded...

After the Seattle Mariners lost the opening series to the Angels, it’s time to review what went well and what didn’t during the first three games of the year. Of course, it’s still much too early to say that any of the following will be a sign of things to come, but it’s still a good idea to observe the good and the bad of the beginning of the 2015 season.

Why Felix Hernandez will win the AL Cy Young award in 2015

On opening day 2015, Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez showed why he is one of the best pitchers in baseball. Despite giving up a homerun to Angels superstar Mike Trout in the first inning, Hernandez settled in and pitched a stellar game against an offense that is known for putting up runs. After the homerun to Trout, King Felix allowed only a fifth-inning single to Erick Aybar...
