Mia Culpa to King Felix, Take 2

When Felix cruised through June blasting through several weak lineups, I was happy, sure, but still very wary of giving him back his crown. I mentioned to a couple people -- these performances were great and all, but let's see him do it against Texas.

Tonight, he did it against Texas.

If Rob Johnson didn't have compromising photos of the official scorekeeper, and actually lived up to the defensive reputation bestowed upon him, King Felix would've been unscathed through 8 tonight -- with a rusty but still Josh Hamilton back in Texas's lineup. I didn't get to watch the game, but I've seen enough of the recap and this screen grab to know that he's well-deserving of my re-coronation of him tonight.

I'm sorry for ever calling you overrated, King Felix -- here's your crown back...

Now please keep it this time.
