Nice article on Bobby Madritsch in USA Today

Nice article on the front page of the USA Today sports section- check it out if you haven't read it already- link

"Bobby Madritsch's rise to the major leagues is a story of perseverance: He grew up in a gang-filled area on Chicago's South Side, dropped out of college, pitched for four independent league teams and recovered from reconstructive surgery on his left shoulder to join the Seattle Mariners' starting rotation last month as a 28-year-old rookie."


So KC comes to town for a 5-game series. After getting swept by the lowly Rays, what possible expectations should we have as the two worst teams in the AL go head-to-head?

Really, is there any team in all of baseball that is playing any worse than the M's?
