Felix Hernandez

Third inning, Boston vs Seattle, Hernandez is dropping 92 mph sliders on top of 100-99 mph fastballs followed up with 90 mph curves and 88 mph breaking balls. Electric stuff, effectively wild (scary). Last time someone this good was pitching for the Mariners was Randy Johnson in 1993 through 1997.

Usually these marque match-ups disappoint (oh yeah, some guy called Dice-K's pitching too), but so far, this one is Awesome. Wicked frickin' pissa' awesome.

UPDATE: HERNANDEZ IS PITCHING A NO-HITTER THROUGH 7, AND HE IS DOMINATING. I AM SO EXCITED I'M BREAKING MY NUMBER TWO RULE* AND TYPING IN ALL-CAPS, BECAUSE YES, I REALLY AM SHOUTING.

Update 2: Pineiro is in for Boston. My brother Adam just called to say that this is a bit of strategy on Cochran's part: Let Pineiro give up 15 runs, at which point Felix will have sat too long to go back in.... There's only one word for it: Strategery. Yes, Yoda is wise, but the Rock is powerful.

*Number one rule? I will never, ever, never ever buy an RV.

  • Mike, if a near-no-hitter is all it takes for you to break rule number two, I see an RV in your future.

  • Allow me to reply in proper Oregonean:

    "It would be really great? ...like if you weren't stuck in such a negative headspace? Just because your backwater town... Doesn't have a major league baseball team?"
