2001 Seattle Mariners Crazier Than I Thought

This post refers to espn.go.com

David Schoenfield of ESPN.com taught me something about the 2001 Seattle Mariners:

They beat Cleveland in five games in the Division Series, rallying to win the final two games after getting bombed 17-2 in Game 3. But there were problems. Shortstop Carlos Guillen had contracted tuberculosis, and there were fears he’d infected the entire clubhouse. He missed the Cleveland series and played sparingly in the ALCS against the Yankees.

Definitely didn’t remember the 17-2 loss, and definitely didn’t know about the tuberculosis. What a crazy season.
