Tom Glavine is the best pitcher. He’ll pitch on three days rest in Game 5. For Glavine to not be pitching that day to save the Mets’ season, they need a win from Steve Trachsel tonight or Oliver Perez tomorrow. It all boils down to that. I’m thinking that thought doesn’t bring you the warm fuzzies.
* Weather here is chilly. So are some Mets’ hitters: Carlos Beltran (1-8, of course, it was a biggie); David Wright (0-6); Jose Valentin (1-7). Valentin is 1-16 in the playoffs.
* Everybody available in the bullpen tonight, but they are saving Darren Oliver in case Perez doesn’t have it tomorrow.
