New York Yankees: instant thoughts to game 91 vs. the Seattle Mariners

In game number 91 of the 2015 season, the New York Yankees were looking to win their second game against the Seattle Mariners, which would give them a series win.

Why You Shouldn't Count The Mariners Out Just Yet

Before the season started, the Seattle Mariners were a hot pick to win the 2015 World Series. Their strong pitching rotation, led by Felix Hernandez, along with their vastly improved offense, led by the duo of Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz, had them on everyone's radar. Unfortunately, the games are played on the field rather than on paper, and they have significantly underperformed...

While his Seattle Mariners teammates Felix Hernandez and Nelson Cruz bask in the glow of their All-Star selections this week in Cincinnati, pitcher Taijuan Walker will be sightseeing in New York City. That's according to MLB.com's Greg Johns, who says the young right-hander will be utilizing the break to focus on things not related to baseball.  Walker allowed six earned runs to...

Boxscore Breakdown #85: Hail to the King – Mariners 7, Angels 2

Making sense of advanced hitting statistics

Following baseball can be a chore. Determining if Felix Hernandez or Corey Kluber was worthy of winning the 2014 Cy Young Award would have been simple a generation ago. Take a look at that win/loss record, ERA, and strikeout totals. The main debate would have been if either of them deserved to win on non-playoff teams or if the head-to-head victory that Kluber won in September should...

Thursday’s short day brings us a quartet of aces led by King Felix Hernandez as well as four pitchers that rate below 80, making the day’s short slate one of the most spread out of the season.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Jun 24

On Monday I selected Felix Hernandez, Michael Pineda, and a Twins stack. It didn’t quite go as expected. First, my concerns over Hernandez facing the Royals were realized as KC made about as much contact as you’d expect. I should have swapped Felix out for Clayton Kershaw once it looked like the weather was going to hold, but I didn’t do that in this lineup. Pineda was over...

Not so Royal: The King Out-dueled by Joe Blanton

Raise your hand if you had Joe Blanton out-pitching Felix Hernandez. Nobody? Okay.   When Nelson Cruz belted a solo homer in the first inning, it was looking to be a long night for Joe Blanton and the Kansas City Royals. He then sat down the next sixteen batters. In his six innings of work, Blanton allowed just two hits, and struck out seven batters. Blanton went back out...
