The conscience of the King

Our savior hath arriveth, and although Tad has posted about it already, King
Felix deserves a second textual genuflect.

Here are his stat lines over the three years that he's been rocketing up the M's system:

Tasty. Zesty. This is the type of overpowering starting pitcher we've lacked since RJ left town. 100 K's in 88 innings pitched at Tacoma this year. Walks were a mite high (about 5 per nine innings), so I think we can expect jitters and general factors to equate to a few more walks than we'd like to see in his first start or two. Hopefully, we'll also see at least twice as many K's.

The M's rotation is an utter mess right now. Not that it really matters for this year, but King Felix couldn't have arrived at a better time.
