(Tom’s professionalism and positive attitude is begining to rub off on his younger teammates)
Today’s line for the Mets starter introduced by the Fox Sports NW jokers as “a probable Hall of Famer” :
2 1/3 IP, 8 hits, 6 earned runs, 2 walks and a two-run homer served up to Richie Sexson.
Were it not for his enormous contract and inexplicably close relationship with the owner, Tom Glavine would not only be a candidate for demotion, but waiving him outright would be openly discussed. With the possible exception of George Foster, Glavine might be the worst free agent acquisition in club history. Though neither Heilman nor Seo have done nearly as much to earn Willie Randolph’s patience, neither have been as consistently disappointing over a 3 year span, either. How many more times will Glavine spot the opposition a massive lead before his spot in the rotation is in jeopardy?
