A lot is happening tonight. Tom Glavine gets 299. How often does the turning point come in the first inning? It did tonight when Glavine got Xavier Nady to ground into a DP. His first crack at 300 is Tuesday in Milwaukee.
Mark Grudzielanek is on the Mets’ radar. The Mets are talking to KC about their second baseman. Why pay attention to this? Simple. His contract calls for a $4 million player option if he gets 500 at-bats. He has 265 now, so that’s within reach. And, the Royals are always sellers.
Carlos Beltran is hurt. What’s your worry level there? If he’s out any length of time do you have confidence in Lastings Milledge?
And, I probably don’t even need to ask this, but what’s your confidence level on Moises Alou. Should the Mets call it quits with him and look for an outfielder?
