    They should have just given him a "right elbow inflammation" diagnosis and put him on 60 day DL.

    This should have been done a while ago. The awkward part is that a lot of his starts had more runs in the first inning than the rest combined... so making him a 1-2 inning guy seems bad for a slow starter, but I'm guessing he only plays blowouts now.

    The amusing part of this is for years the only really really good players on this team was Ichiro and Felix. This year they were the only really really bad players, combining for about negative 2 WAR.

    It's sad to see these once great pitchers like Hernandez, Johan Santana and Tim Lincecum who seemed Hall of Fame bound, fade into mediocrity. Felix is still relatively young, but he's been going downhill for years.

    he's been extremely inconsistent. the blazing fastball isn't there so the change up isn't nearly as effective. and the Astros owned him.. should work with Moyer or Maddux. I feel he still has the stuff. has to get out of his K mentality

    Agreed, and the upper management didn't help him with this as they've still done the Kings Court promotion for way too long... handing out "K" cards and having everyone chant K when he gets to 2 strikes.

    Watching bits and pieces of the M's/Astros game yesterday, I heard them mention this. Given the point in the season, putting him on 60-day DL would make him unavailable for the playoffs, I think, and the M's are definitely in contention given the state of the Astros. If he doesn't have to be completely shut down, it makes sense to give him limited duty. Though maybe they should, anyway.
