Second Thoughts Game #107: Cleveland 2, Seattle 0

Felix Hernandez Finally Getting His Due For The Seattle Mariners

Felix Hernandez has been a prime example for several seasons of a pitcher who has been a dominant pitcher without a dominant record. This year, for the first time in a long time, the Cy Young candidate is finally sporting a win total that mirrors his dominance—and that’s nice to see. King Felix’s numbers this year are ballistic, even more so than they have been in the past...
