King Felix Hernandez has earned a massive payday. A 5 year contract extension with the Seattle Mariners that will see him paid $175 million dollars through 2019. I have a personal connection with this story as last August I was lucky enough to see the King pitch his perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Great players in small markets often seek their money from larger clubs with bigger payrolls so I’m glad to see Hernandez staying in Seattle for a long time to come.
