Tom Glavine deserved better, but the truth is the Mets could have deserved worse. Their offense sputtered most of the night, but in the end they found a way to win.
The bench has played huge so far this season. Damion Easley and Julio Franco had big hits. And for those who argued Endy Chavez should have run for Moises Alou the night before, your argument stood up when Chavez scored the tying run with a slide in the ninth.
Most any other runner would have been out.
Any time a team pulls out a game it could have lost that’s a character builder. That sounds cliche, but that’s what they said in the clubhouse. And, what matters is if they believe it.
