Rain Gives Bullpen A Well-Deserved Rest



It's raining so much in England, it's flooding and chaos is about to burst.



It's raining so much in Texas and Oklahoma, it caused the cancellation of the Heartland Flyer.

At Shea last night, rain and monsoon-like rains were enough to get Tom Glavine win number 297 and end the game after six innings with the Mets having taken two out of three from the "Defending World Champion" Cardinals and earning their 5th win in their last 6 games.


Running, before swimming 'round the bases.

All it really took was David Wright's two-run homer in the first inning to give Anthony Reyes his 10th loss against Zero wins this season.

Yeah, it's ok to make fun of that, no one will sue you for being politically incorrect. It ent a typo. Anthony Reyes is 0-10 for 2007. And I thought I was having a rough year.

It didn't hurt that Carlos Gomez continued his month-long quest to steal Moises Alou's job in left field with another dazzling catch, this one in the 4th inning off of Juan Encarnacion's fly ball to deep left. It didn't necessarily save the game but it saved Glavine alot of unnecessary angst.

And a further bright side, Carlos Delgado was only up to the plate twice last night so another hitless appearance only lowered his average to .223. But give him a break, he might have broken out given more time. After all, he's had two hits in his last 14 at-bats.

Overall you could say that in this series the Mets won despite a flailing plate performance. When you think about it, entering last night's 2-hit performance the Mets had only eeked out 9 hits over 22 innings. That's 11 hits over three games which still managed to produce 2 victories. Not bad. The shift of momentum or perhaps luck or perhaps skill overcoming bad luck, may have happened faster than we imagined.

And as for the rest of the world, well in England this morning, the rain has for at least the early hours, lifted. Sunshine prevails.
