Mets’ Three-Headed Monster Will Put Red Sox’s Ace-Beating Trend To Test

For a last-place team, the Boston Red Sox have performed surprisingly well of late against some of the best pitching Major League Baseball has to offer. They smacked around reigning American League Cy Young winner Corey Kluber, torched Seattle’s Felix Hernandez, beat up on Kansas City Royals ringer Johnny Cueto and finished off a miserable series against the White Sox last month...

The Second Half Has Been Bizarro Mariners

Superman fans know Bizarro as the supervillain with all the attributes of Superman, but with some of the powers reversed, like cold vision instead of heat vision. Seattle Mariners fans, accustomed to really good pitching, anchored by King Felix Hernandez, and, well, really not so good hitting, spearheaded by usually no one, may be thinking that the M’s since the All Star break...

How much did Felix Hernandez solve?

Wednesday was a pretty good day for starting-pitcher redemption. Most visibly, Justin Verlander came a few outs from no-hitting the Angels, calling attention to the fact that it looks like he’s back on track. In Chicago, Rick Porcello returned to the Red Sox and spun seven shutout innings, after entering with an ERA near 6. And Felix Hernandez turned in an effective outing at home...

Daily Pitcher Duels: Aug. 26

Check 'em out: Wei-Yin Chen (BAL) vs. Johnny Cueto (KCR) 8:10 p.m. ET Chen doesn't get a lot of pub outside of Baltimore, but over the past calendar year has a 3.06 ERA which ranks 21st among 78 qualified starters.

Is Felix Hernandez Hurting?

Fresh off of the worst start of his career, Felix Hernandez is in the rundown for every baseball show on television. Often so far, the producer’s notes have asked the analysts to wonder if the team left their ace in too long, and what that means about the relationship between the player and his management and coaches. Here’s another reason to wonder if he was left in too long...

Where Did The Seattle Mariners Go Wrong?

2015 has not been kind to the Seattle Mariners. They were pegged as World Series favorites entering the season, expectations that really weren’t all that lofty – the team had a scarily dominant rotation, led by future Hall of Famer Felix Hernandez, who was followed by young phenoms Taijuan Walker and James Paxton. They signed reigning home run champ Nelson Cruz to a 4-year deal...

Felix Hernandez looks back on 10th anniversary of MLB debut

Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez broke into the league in 2005 at the age of 19 - so it's remarkable to step back and realize that he's been baffling hitters for a decade now. Earlier this week, the tenth anniversary of King Felix's MLB debut came and went - allowing Felix an opportunity to look back on the path he's blazed for himself.  Shannon Drayer of ESPN Seattle caught...

Colorado Rockies: Eddie Butler no match for King Felix and his pawns

  With all the hype for Jon Gray’s debut start on Tuesday and Felix Hernandez starting tonight for the Mariners, all the pressure seemed to be on Eddie Butler.  The knock on Butler has been that he nibbles the strike zone and doesn’t trust his “stuff”.  Monday night was no different.  After allowing four runs in the 1st inning, Butler gave up back to back home runs to...

Mariners-Rockies Preview

Felix Hernandez hasn't had much trouble rebounding from the rare rocky outing, but could have a tougher time doing so when he pitches at Coors Field for the first time. The Seattle Mariners' star hopes to continue his dominance in bounce-back starts Monday night when Jose Reyes makes his home debut for the NL West-worst Colorado Rockies.

Sunday Notes: Felix, Shark, Archer, Sale, Castellanos, more

My first piece for FanGraphs was an interview with Felix Hernandez. That was in May 2011, when Hernandez was 25 years old and coming off a Cy Young season. Four-plus years later, I’m still here and King Felix is better than ever. Earlier this summer, I asked the Seattle Mariners ace to compare then to now. “I’m a little different,” Hernandez told me. “I don’t throw as...
