Mets 2 - Reds 1
Played Saturday, July 14, 2007

No one can accuse Tom Glavine of backing into 300 wins. The Mets seem determined to make him earn each one. This one took 8 innings of 2-hit ball and a 2-out RBI from Lastings Milledge in the bottom of the eighth for Tommy to move within 2 wins of baseball immortality.

After allowing a solo homer to Brandon Phillips in the second, Glavine completely shut down the Reds attack. Meanwhile, the Mets kept putting Reds starter Matt Belisle in jeopardy but letting him off the hook. It wasn't until the sixth inning that Shawn Green's soft 2-out single evened the game and got Glavine off the hook for a loss. Thank goodness Milledge came through and got Glavine a much-deserved win.

Not much to say about the offense. The failure to get the big hit is still a big problem for this team. Two runs on 11 hits pretty much says it all.

Wagner was throwing BBs up there in the ninth inning as he picked up save number 19 on the season.

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.

A nice game when everything falls into place. I seen some shaprly hit outs in this game and I don't mind those kind of outs.I think Beltran needs a lesson or a good talkin to, he just isn't with it. Three catchers? could you see Laduca being traded? I find myself making sure I don't leave the room and waiting untill Millage hits, he has that something that grabs your attention. I think Willie has to be stern with his vets as he is with the kids. I see them talking about Jeramine Dye. I would like to see a bigger trade that includes Javier Vazquez but I am afraid of the cost.

Al - Yeah, even though the offense isn't really there yet, it looks better. We'll see what it looks like after they face SD and LA's pitching staffs.

I don't think they need Vazquez.
