Keep in mind Felix did say in the beginning of the season that his mechanics looked like crap on film, and after that he was..... fine. Biggest understatement ever
however, the shrewd i want to win side is different, im sprung on pat gillick philosophy. he won b2b ships w/ the jays, a WS w/ phillies, and built the ms 116 win team. never did he care to invest in a cy young caliber SP, he never went more than 3yrs on a SP and his last 10yrs or so he never budged on that, it was always a deep compilation of SPs trying to prove themselves blended w/ wily vets hanging on, and investing in MOTO and leadoff guys.
if gillick led this team, right now, he'd prolly deal felix. GMZ is soooo the oppo of stand pat gillick.
Yea i am also scared of giving a pitcher a huge contract but Felix is different he is the face of this franchise and i could see him having a long career as long as he doesn't get injured.
I wouldn't be opposed to the idea of trading him if he says he won't sign an extension and we can fleece somebody though.
