WE BRIEFLY INTERRUPT YOUR DAY FOR THIS FRESH AND HOT NEWS:
Felix Hernandez has been scratched with an illness tonight. Iwakuma will start instead.— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) April 22, 2016
Felix Hernandez is one strikeout away from having the all-time Seattle Mariners record. He will not break that record tonight against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. In his place, Hisashi Iwakuma will toe the rubber for the M's on regular rest thanks to the off-day on Monday. All is well and fine.
However, this allows for us to take a few parting shots at Cleveland and I'd be remiss to do so. Felix clearly caught something while in the The Forest City and we can't just let that shit slide. So what exactly did he catch? Well, barring an Airborne Toxic Event (I actually can't stand this band), it could have been the water. I certainly hope Felix wasn't brave enough to try the seafood while in town. But we all know the real reason that Cleveland made Felix sick.
There's losing in that air.
Hey, this is even more recent!
What do you think made Felix sick in Cleveland?
