Mets Guarantee At Least .500 By Crushing Rockies

Tom Glavine sent his 2005 season off with a brilliant 2-hit performance, guaranteeing both his own first .500 record in three seasons with the Mets AND the Mets own .500 record for the first time since 2000 as the Mets defeated the Colorado Rockies in the opening game of the final series of the season, 11-0.

Glavine struck out 11 batters last night in his last start of the season to finish the year with a 13-13 record and a 3.53 earned run average. It was his 275th career win and his 24th career shutout.



Leading the offensive barrage was David Wright, whose two homer and three RBIS pushed him to 100 RBIs on the season

Mike Piazza added a homer following Wright's in the 5th, his 19th of the season, a massive 450 shot to left field which earned him a standing ovation and eventually, as the heady madness of watching the Mets career of a future Hall of Famer wind down, the barking mad calls for "one more year".

Jose Reyes' strikeout in the 6th was his 683rd at-bat of the season setting a Mets record. It's quite difficult to imagine that Reyes, injury-riddled all last season and with historically hampered hammies, has set a record for at-bats but there it is.

This, or the subsequent post tomorrow will be my last for the next month as, like Pedro, I am cutting out on the season a few games earlier to enjoy my offseason holidays.

Thus, my season-ending grades, comments, eulogies and epitaths will not likely be forthcoming until well after the rest of the blogosphere has finished and the misery that is the Jets well planted and perhaps already bearing fruit.


Mr Sports Net New York looking somewhat like an alien in his own skin

This is no secret but frankly, Manny Ramirez is a really bad Met signing waiting to happen. I can feel the muscles pulling, the bad clubhouse karma and the lengthy spells on the disabled list from here.

Read my lips, Freddy. Manny Ramirez to the Mets is a step back in the wrong direction. Stay away from the Manny, please.
