I don’t usually condone tattoos, especially visible ones, but the reader’s “Say what?” comment (TNT, 4-3) was a tad harsh.

Felix Hernandez is a family man, a leader on the Seattle Mariners team and in the community, and I would hope that most would reflect on these positive things.

He is not a “thug,” as the reader labeled him. So let’s rally behind our ace pitcher and hope for a great season. Go Mariners and go Felix!
