Pedro Feliciano, who has been with the team (albeit with interruptions) since 2002. Three other Mets were on the team in 2003: Tom Glavine, who was the Opening Day starter, and Jose Reyes and Aaron Heilman, both of whom debuted in June.

Didn't think of Feliciano; I thought it was Glavine.

Last year, it was Trachsell. Ugh.

Could only come up with Glavine, though thought that there was probably someone with a longer tenure in the pen.
Glavine's status as *almost* the longest-tenured Met is really, really, really (really) disturbing. He's clearly been (contrary to expectations) a good signing, but -- unless the Mets win the world series with him on their staff -- he will always be a Brave to me.

A bit OT, but one of these two has got to be the saddest thing I have ever seen in a box score:

A) "Rangers 30, Orioles 3 (Game 1)"
B) "Bell pitched to seven batters in the 8th"

That must have been a fun clubhouse between games.

Glavine, right?

That's news to me. Thanks I ususally don't follow the Mets. Very informative.

I found your link through a baseball blog directory. Just wanted to let you know that Elite Baseball Instruction is sponsoring a free LG 24 inch monitor giveaway for just blogging about their site. Visit me for details if you are interested.
