Great job by Seattle to get the deal done to keep him in Seattle and not hit FA

He still had two years remaining on his contract, they should have waited till next offseason to sign him.  What if he get hurt this year?

What if he got hurt right after he signed next year?

If that happened everybody in Seattle would understand because they had no choice, this year they had a choice.  Personally If I was Seattle I would have traded him this winter.

I wouldnt. Great pitching like that is hard to come by. They have a great set of pitching spec in their minors and if they live up to their hype, they could have one of the best pitching staffs in the majors.

 :iatp: Agreed, baseball is a pitching dominated sport. You have a face of a franchise like that you hold on to him for as long as you can. The fans there adore King Felix, injury or not he's still the centerpiece of that organization.

It takes hitting to get to the playoffs and pitching to win once you get to the playoffs.  What good is a bunch of aces if your in last place.

The 90s Braves might be the exception but they had HOF level pitchers and a bunch of decent hitters in a bad division and still only won the WS once.

15 Consecutive Division titles, 4 WS appearances in a decade. What Marieners fan, or baseball fan for that matter wouldn't kill for that. Calling braves hitters at that time decent is a stretch, in a good year they had the most inconsistent bats in the MLB.
