Seattle Mariners’ pitcher Felix Hernandez is having his normal, dominant year (7-4, 2.49 with 102Ks). That’s the kind of output that lands you a $175 million contract, albeit with a team that has sucked way too often in recent years.

With all that paper, though, why did King Felix spend $1.4 million in May to buy an outdated, suburban home in Clyde Hill, Washington? To bulldoze it, perhaps, according to Realtor.com:

Hernandez recently shelled out $1.4 million for a very suburban, 1964 split-level in Clyde Hill, which would be fine if he was still earning a rookie’s salary… It’s located in an area on the east side of Lake Washington that sports sprawling mountain and water views, which begs the question: Is a bulldozer in its future?

Makes sense. Hernandez also gets to live thisclose to Bill Gates. Imagine those two in a rec softball league? Grab a bat, Ginger Snap!

Highlights of Felix Hernandez’s Clyde Hill, Wash. House:

• 5 bedrooms, 2.75 baths; 3,120-square-feet

• Views of Mt. Rainier to the south and the Olympics to the west

1.8 miles from Bill Gates’ house

5.7 miles to Deja Vu Showgirls Gentlemen’s Club

• 10 Starbucks locations within 2 miles

Paid: $1,400,000

Mortgage: $5,190K doesn’t include budget for bulldozer, dumpster, hauling
