Felix Hernandez or "King Felix" as they call him out there, has had an amazing career already and he's only going to turn 25 this season.
What he accomplished last season was one of the weirdest things imaginable. He won the American League Cy Young award for a team that lost 101 games. That's hard to believe.
Not that he could be that good in a year which his team was so bad—it wasn't his fault—but that the voters would choose him to be the winner.
Nonetheless, it still was a controversial choice considering the numbers he finished with. He did lead the league in ERA at 2.27, but he only won 13 games. His last game started of the season was a huge one in deciding if he'd win the award or not. He was 12-12 and had he lost, it would've been interesting to see if he'd win the award with a losing record.
But the mere fact that a pitcher could be so dominant, including allowing 55 less hits than innings pitched, when the team he pitches for is so bad, shows you how great he is.
You think last season was great for him? How about in 2009 when he went 19-5 and didn't even win the Cy Young, finishing in second?
He's already won 71 big league games and if the Mariners could improve or if he could go to a winning club, just imagine how many games he'd win per year.
Unfortunately, him only winning 13 no matter why, places him so low on this list.
