What good timing for our latest hour-long radio special tonight, 7 p.m. PT on Sports Radio KJR. I’ll be the host and taking calls once again and I’m going to devote the entire hour to looking at the past, present and future of Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
We’ll talk about the past, namely yesterday’s perfect game. The present, as in the ongoing race for the 2012 Cy Young Award and how the perfect game impacts Hernandez’s chances.
And, we’ll discuss the future, namely, if the Mariners are going to do what they say and hold on to Hernandez long-term, how do they go about accomplishing it? More importantly, how do they hold on to him to the point where it makes sense in order for them to play winning baseball? After all, they held on to him three years ago and extended him for $78 million over five years, only to see what looks like it will be three consecutive last-place finishes.
Not a winning formula, even if you get a Cy Young race and perfect game every once in a while. So, how to make it work.
Join me at 7 p.m. I’m sure we’ll have some fun. The number to call is 206-286-9595, or 1-800-829-0950.
By the way, to celebrate Hernandez’s perfect game, the Mariners will be turning next Tuesday’s game against the Cleveland Indians into a “Supreme Court” Night. Instead of the usual King’s Court section in left field, it has been expanded to the Supreme Court — meaning the first 34,000 fans get a “King of Perfection t-shirt (pictured above) and a commemerative “K” card they can hold up when Hernandez is going for a strikeout. The back of the card will include a photo from the perfect game on the back.
Tickets start at $10 for View Level seats, while Main Level seats are $30 and up.
