Glavine Gets 299

Mets 6 - Pirates 3
Played Wednesday, July 25, 2007

Just playing some quick catch-up on posts for the last 2 games:

I was at this game Wednesday with the great Greg Prince from Faith and Fear in Flushing. I have to admit that things weren't looking good in the first inning when Glavine loaded the bases with walks. Getting that double play from Nady probably was the difference between hanging on for the victory or enduring another rugged start. As it was, there was never a point when Glavine was pitching where I had complete confidence that he would make it through, even after he was staked out to a 6-0 lead.

I'm hoping for Glavine to pick up number 300 fairly quickly. I suspect the pressure of achieving this win is understandably getting to him a little.

It's been an up and down season for Aaron Heilman, but his 2 innings in this one were definitely in the "up" column. He dominated the Pirates so thoroughly in the seventh and eighth inning that what still had the feel of anyone's game to that point came to feel like a comfortable lead. Then Wagner came in and shut the door -- the final disappointment for some loud, drunken Pirates fans down the row from Greg and myself. Then again, it seemed like they were more interested in acting like a**holes than in cheering their team on, anyway.

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.

Some random thoughts...If the Mets trade Milledge I think they're out of their collective minds....Trade for Dotel maybe, if hes on the cheap...forget about Loretta or Grudz....possibly Cordero if we are not held up at gunpoint....we'll need two corner outfielders next yr.; after we win the world series....G-d forbid no Kazmir type events, I beg you Omar....put Pelfrey in the bullpen if you must, with his one dimensionality he might be good for an inning or possibly two...Get Mota some "chronic" mota and maybe he'll have a visionary revelation...maybe Alou can be like having made a trade and finally what if Petey is Petey agin...?

Sorry for the late reply. Crazy weekend.

It sounds like Cordero isn't available for anything reasonable. I'm with you on Milledge, but I'm very curious if there is anyone who is really a difference maker out there whose cost isn't prohibitive.
