ALMOST WORTH VIOLATING THE STATE BORDER RULE:

Mariners Notebook: Felix, Dice-K to clash: M's top starter excited to face Japanese star (JOHN HICKEY, 4/10/07, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER)

Felix Hernandez was under scrutiny Opening Day as just the seventh pitcher in nearly a century to start the season opener before his 21st birthday.

Hernandez turned 21 on Sunday, but he'll still be under the spotlight for his next start Wednesday in Boston. And not because of his age.

He'll be compared with the Red Sox's Daisuke Matsuzaka, who will be making his first Fenway Park start.

C'mon, you wouldn't even violate the state-border rule for that?

Btw, if the Mariners really want to reduce stress on King Felix's arm this year, they should only have him pitch to Youks, Manny, FatPapi, and Nancy, and have the firstbaseman pitch to the rest of what passes for a lineup with the Sawx while the King relaxes at first base.

If God had wanted Man to leave NH, He'd not have given us radios and NESN HD.
