Jae Seo! Number ten!
Don't forget to tell your grandkids that the Mets' two most prolific pitchers of the aughts were Tom Glavine and Steve Trachsel. Glavine is almost universally reviled by Mets' fans, though he actually had a pretty decent stretch with the Mets that was unfortunately bookended by his two worst starts. He would also show up his fielders on occasion and at times seemed to drift into clock-punching mode.
Trachsel was dubbed the "Human Rain Delay", and while he was usually a chore to watch on the mound -- and though he utterly crapped the proverbial bed in Game 3 of the 2006 NLCS -- he was a useful pitcher for a number of years, consistently outperforming his FIP. Not a great pitcher by any stretch, but he gets credit for showing up and not being terrible.
