Hints of Good News

This is Matthew's(?) link from the USSM about comments Baker made about the interview that Felix "avoided." Geoff said that since Felix hadn't accomplished anything in baseball, he is not allowed to avoid the press, and that he was being childish and immature. The article at the bottom by Shannon Drayer was in response to that. The article itself is worth reading, but this was also nice to see [emphasis mine]:

That night I along with a reporter from MLB.com waited for Felix. When he came out he was surprised that there were only two of us left. I explained that the others had deadlines and Felix replied, “But it is early.” He then gave us the interview. From the interview I could tell that he wasn’t quite sure how to handle himself in this particular situation. He didn’t want to say that he pitched poorly. He spouted the company line on how they were struggling and how he believed that the bats would come along. He seemed a bit confused on just how he was supposed to answer the questions. He did give one good nugget, he said that he believes he has been throwing the fastball too much in his recent starts and needs to mix in more breaking balls. It was a decent interview, and while not as timely as some would want, no arm twisting was required.

I think we had a recent discussion about how some guys on the radio said that the M's blogs told Felix to throw more fastballs and I think that Blowers or someone also said that you can never throw enough fastballs. Good to see that at least Felix gets it.
