Podcast: Can these Mariners go on to better things after the All-Star Break?

Spoke to David Aardsma, seen above after he closed out the ninth with a strikeout on Elvis Andrus. Aardsma becomes just the fifth pitcher in club history to record 20 or more saves at the break.
Safe to say Aardsma was a tad excited after this game. So were the Mariners. They just took three of four from a team that’s led the AL West for most of the season.
“I feel like we’re really close to what Tampa Bay was doing last year,” Aardsma said. “They were pitching well, scoring runs when they needed to and making really good defensive plays. And that’s all we can do.”
Whoa, there. That’s some strong stuff.

Is he a “buyer” or a “seller”? Has he seen enough so far?
Let’s take a look at some of what he has to go on.
