Mets 8, Phillies 1
Tom Glavine's pitching line:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 6.0 6 1 1 5 3 0 102-59 28Tom Glavine will probably lose most of his starts in which he allows eleven baserunners over six innings. He won in a blowout last night because the Phillies are utterly incapable of coming up with a big hit ever. They lead the league in on-base percentage, which is awesome, but last night's loss drops them to 3-9, last in the NL East, and manager Charlie Manual is clearly starting to percolate. Once again Jimmy Rollins owned the Mets at the plate, but since neither Chase Utley nor Ryan Howard can buy a hit at this point, the Mets weren't made to pay. Rollins and Shane Victorino combined to reach base six times last night and scored a grand total of zero runs.
- Carlos Delgado has been downright stinky at the plate through the first twelve games. The Mets are mostly winning anyway, but the dude just looks like a hacker right now.
- Jose Reyes is clearly awesome, but sometimes I get the feeling that he overrates his own awesomeness on the basepaths. Last nights pickoff at second base was a case in point. I don't know if he fell asleep out there or what, but getting nabbed like that was just a tremendous boo-boo. As long as he learns from it, we can be thankful that it occurred in what wound up being a blowout.
- He gave up a couple of baserunners in an inning of work, but Joe Smith's stuff is pretty filthy. That slider? Ooo-wee. Righties have no idea what to do with it.
