For all of the numbers you can point to for John Maine, to me the most important is "14" -- the number of wins he has with a month to go in the season.

There was a lot of sentiment among Mets fans going into this game that they would have rather seen Phillip Humber start this game. No one felt that way after Pelfrey started mowing down Braves hitters, displaying the slider and changeup that should take his game to the next level. Pelfrey has another start in relief of the limping Orlando Hernandez, then the Mets should start auditioning him for a playoff role out of the bullpen.

Maybe the best game Tom Glavine has pitched against his old mates. After giving back a run in the ninth, Billy Wagner may have rediscovered his mojo in nailing down the save. It would be nice to see a return of the dominating closer from early in the year.
