Glavine, Braves Top Mets 6-1

You won’t read this here very often: the Mets scored their only run of the game on a Luis Castillo home run. How about that?

The most disappointing thing about this game is how well Tom Glavine looked. John Maine couldn’t keep up with him. The Mets scored their only run in the first inning and left the bases loaded. They never mounted a threat after that.

Maine only made it through four innings giving up four runs on eight hits and three walks. Scott Schoenweis relieved him in the fifth and then Aaron Heilman let things get out of reach in the seventh inning. Brian McCann hit a two run homer off Heilman. He just can’t figure out how to get through a clean inning.

They’ll do it again tonight at 7:00pm with Claudio Vargas going against Jorge Campillo.

  1. Just when I thought Willie was keeping up with my Internet comments regarding Heilman, he once again felt the need to ignore his fans by giving the 7th-Inning-Handyman Heilman another chance to get 3-outs. Home-Run Heilman does it again! We are WAY passed giving this guy another chance, and we're WAY passed analyzing his talent to have current potential. I do not care if the Mets are winning or losing by 10-runs — this is New York, where players are expected to perform; where fans continue to be the most passionate viewers; where personnel hits the highway if things are not going well. Heilman needs to go anywhere except the mound — unless it's for another NL East team.
