The way the Mets and the Braves both played today, I think our guys should franternize with the enemy more often. For my day job I covered the opening of the new Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square last night that featured a set by Velvet Revolver. And who should show up but Mike Piazza, David Wright, Steve Trachsel, Kris Benson and -- get this -- a bunch of the Braves, including Mike Hampton. Most of these Braves players stayed much later than Wright or Piazza, which could be an explanation for why these two Mets made some stellar defensive plays.
Or maybe it's that Tom Glavine once again pitched a great game, going the distance. Geez, this guy should have at least 13 more wins in his career as a Met, which would put him very close to that magical 300 number. Speaking another magical number, come on .500.
