According to MLBTraderumors, the guys over at the U.S.S. Mariner noticed a pattern with Felix Hernandez's pitching strategy: establishing the fastball until he can K a guy with his sharp curve. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's a trend . . .anyways, they sent a letter to Rafael Chaves, the M's pitching coach, and King Felix read it. Well, he read the letter, and credits it to his 8 scoreless innings.

So, I'm wondering if anyone's picked up any tendencies our pitchers have that our staff might not have noticed. I don't know if telling them that they walk too many batters would make a difference, but hell, it's worth a shot. Maybe it'll help us out . . .
