I talked about his spectacular home run rate last week, but he’s just pitching lights out across the board right now. Take a look at his game log. After facing some pretty easy competition in August, he’s faced the White Sox on the road, the Red Sox, and now the Angels, and he’s going through them like butter.
He’s locked up a rotation spot for 2005. For all the talk about the upside Gil Meche has, I’ll take Madritsch as the most likely Mariners starter to pitch in the all-star game next year.
