BASEBALL: Workhorses

One quick Mets thought: not only are Tom Glavine (2.07), Al Leiter (2.14), Braden Looper (1.83), Matt Ginter (2.79), Orber Moreno (3.20) and Ricky Bottalico (2.01) all pitching thus far to career-best ERAs, but through 68 games, several Mets pitchers are on pace for career highs in innings pitched, including Glavine (249), Steve Trachsel (218), Looper (93), Ginter (92), and Mike Stanton (85). We'll see how they all hold up.

In Rick Peterson We Trust

I was skeptical about all the hype for Peterson, but it's hard to argue with results. The Mets have the best ERA in the majors with hardly the best staff. So somebody's obviously doing something right.

You heard it here a long time ago ---- Mike Cameron in center does for the Mets pitchers what Andruw Jones does for the Braves & what Cameron did for the Mariners (notice how their staff fell off after he left?)

Those guys suck down ERAs.

I'll tell ya- it is a lot of fun watching Glavine once again prove those who were predicting the worst for him wrong.
