Mets 6, Pirates 0

It really is getting to the point with Tom Glavine that I am totally grasping at straws when trying to think of bad things to say about him. For instance, he waited until his walk year to deliver his finest performances as a Met. Or he didn’t give his domestic help the day off on Monday.

He might not even have any domestic help. I’m just sayin’.

David Wright was 4 for 5 (looks like the slump’s been busted), Xavier Nady hit a 3 run HR in the 7th (so far, the swap for Cameron’s been a steal) and Jorge Julio continued his resurgence as the finest mop-up man in the big leagues by striking out out the side in the 9th.

The Mets are now 10 games over .500 for the first time since 2000. And they didn’t even have to trade Melvin Mora for Mike Bordick this time to get it done.

Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard (above) each homered for the Phillies tonight, as Bonds-basher Cory Lidle collected his 3rd win of the season in Philadelphia’s 6-3 defeat of Atlanta.
