On a Friday the 13th I would have expected a lot of things from the Metropolitians, but not this--seven shutout innings from Tom Glavine? The biggest punching bag on the team this season other than Kaz Matsui? Friday's New York Times had an article that described how Pedro Martinez finally said something to Glavine about how his delivery looked different during this slump. That advice must have really worked for number-47 to shut down the most powerful lineup in the N.L., giving up only four hits and no walks. And after a little mini-slump (2-for-22) Cliff Floyd broke out big time with two solo shots that are both presently headed towards the International Space Station circling our little blue planet.
With Pedro on the mound today, this could be a big confidence boost for the Flushing faithful, who are somehow still over .500.
