Quote of the Day II: Felix Hernandez

“This is the first of many. Now I have to work even harder because I’m the best pitcher in the American League.”

Felix Hernandez, apparently believing that the Cy Young Award is taken away from its current holder head-to-head style, as though this were professional wrestling.

I kid King Felix.  He was quite emotional and genuine in his post-award interview, the highlights of which you can read in the AP writeup.  Like I said in the last post, I really dislike the sportsman’s cliches.  Kudos to Hernandez for saying what he felt rather than offering us the obligatory “I feel honored to have been considered” claptrap.
