Felix Hernandez vs Yu Darvish

Loading Scores

On one hand, Happy Felix Day!

On the other, it's even more than Felix Day. It's Felix coming off possibly his best start ever to face Yu Darvish in the most dramatic and exciting matchup the Mariners have seen all season. It's the return of Nick Franklin, pulled up from AAA Tacoma where he had been hitting home runs with his eyes closed, and will now be DH'ing for the boys in blue. Er, grey. It's in Texas, so maybe Kyle Seager will finally emerge from his Spinal Tap egg on stage left just in time for the song to end. It's a game against a division rival. High, Greek drama from the annals of story archetype played out on a grand stage. Art. l'onzième art

But oh yeah, we get to watch Felix pitch too.
