aardsma end game.JPGBad news out of Mariners camp this evening.  According to Shannon Drayer of Seattle’s ESPN 710, David Aardsma was complaining of groin soreness after Thursday’s spring victory over the Padres.

“Hopefully we catch this before it turns into something serious,” manager Don Wakamatsu said after the game.

If Wakamatsu isn’t concerned, we probably shouldn’t be either.  But any time a closer goes down it is always big news in the baseball world.  The 28-year-old Aardsma rang up an impressive 2.52 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 38 saves in 42 chances last season as the M’s ninth-inning hurler.  He might be behind the rest of the Mariners’ pitchers for the next few weeks, but it doesn’t take long for relievers to get geared up for the regular season, especially closers.

    That’s what he gets for playing doctor with Lorena Bobbit.

    “David Aardsma feeling some groin soreness”
    His own?
    (Brought to you by a forgotten [by me] hockey color man or SportsCenter wag or somebody who years ago upon reporting that so-and-so had pulled a groin muscle replied, “his own?”)
