Felix Hernandez is very good. This is hardly new information, but the guy has faced the Yankees twice this season, and he’s pitched a complete game each time. The last time he pitched at Yankee Stadium, he allowed two hits, one of them by Colin Curtis who’s no longer with the Yankees. Point being, tonight might not be an easy one… Better matchup on Saturday and Sunday. The way Marcus Thames and Austin Kearns are hitting, the Yankees suddenly matchup well against left-handed starters. And frankly, almost anything is better than King Felix.
