It sure does look as if Zambrano’s running emptied his tank. Jose Valentin tripled. A couple of walks. Endy Chavez got a big hit and the Mets lead, 2-0, in the sixth. Chavez just keeps playing well when he gets a chance. Even though as I write that he loses a fly ball in the sun for a triple. Still he made a couple of nice catches today.
Tom Glavine came into the day with five no-decisions in his last 10 starts. The common thread is one inning where he can’t put a lid on things. We’re not going to get the chance to see if he can do it today and he was just pulled in favor of Chad Bradford.
Are the Mets regressing to last year when their bats couldn’t support Glavine and the bullpen let him down?
We shall see.
