I was glad to see that the Mets' bats perform so well last night. Beltran and Delgado had big hits, and Castro continued to show why he's our best option at catcher - although we should be careful not to overlook LoDuca's stellar VORG (Value Over Replacement Grittiness) and what that brings to the team.
Still, I can't help but be worried about Glavine. I didn't watch last night's game, but - at least based on anecdotal evidence - Glavine seems almost totally dependent on an umpire's strike zone. If the ump gives him borderline calls, Glavine cruises. If not, he's in trouble. The result is a pitcher who has been even less consistent than we expected Oliver Perez to be, and I'm not sure how comfortable I am with someone like that in our postseason rotation. Thoughts?
