Rear view not so nice for M's closer

mlb_aardsdma_250[1].jpgMariners closer David Aardsma was a great find by GM Jack Zduriencik in the offseason. He’s saved 26 of 28 chances this season,
crucial to a team that has specialized in one-run victories.

However, it’s not all rosey for Aardsma, who is listed as manager Don Wakamatsu put it, as “minute-to-minute” after having a boil removed from his posterior.

As uncomfortable as that sounds, it must have been even worse to have the entire team, including coaches, enter the training room to look at the thing, as reported by Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times.

Hasn’t been anything attracting this much interest in a visitors’ clubhouse since Omar Vizquel of the Texas Rangers came to Safeco Field with a bunch of baby kangaroos back in July.

No offense to Aardsma, who I’m sure developed himself a fine boil, but I’m going with kangaroos on this one.
