Glavine Impresses

Mike SteffanosThursday, March 1, 2007
By Mike Steffanos


I had the chance to watch the first few innings of today's game. Tom Glavine was in mid-season form in 2 impressive innings. He looked like he could have easily thrown another.

Jorge Sosa had decent stuff, and threw fairly well. He got burned by two solo homeruns. One was just blown over the left field wall by the wind, but the other was a shot. Sosa has always been prone to mistakes, giving up 1.4 homers per nine innings pitched. The Mets don't have all that much money guaranteed to Sosa, so he could definitely pitch himself off this team.

Speaking of mid-season form, Gary, Ron and Keith were in good form on the telecast. They genuinely seem to have fun together, and that comes across well.

The Mets travel to Jupiter, FL, to face the Cardinals tomorrow. The game won't be televised. Chan Ho Park will start for the Mets.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.

Obviously, a better result than yesterday. Tommy G. sounded pretty darn upbeat on M&TMD/WFAN, especially regarding our younger arms. As for tomorrow, yes, it's early, but Park has to know he's not a rotation lock without some really good innings.

How about that Professor Reyes, huh? I've actually lived long enough to hear the Schmooze declare tonite that Shea should become the primary hangout for supermodels this year. Hadn't heard Jeter referred to as "Captain Cologne" before; it rolls so easily off the tongue and makes you want to cheer for OUR shortstop just that little bit more.

Since so many of us are scoring at home, so to speak, it should be noted that Alay Soler had a good outing the other day, and that Willie had nice things to say about his conditioning.

It's an exhibition, but it's also a competition. Wager at will!

geezer - Guess we'll have to wait a little longer on Park, eh. I agree he's not a lock, but a decent spring probably gives him first crack at the job.

dd - I still think he looks more like a reliever than a starter to me, but it was nice to see him show up in shape this year.
