Glavine a Ball

The Mets beat the Pirates at Shea last night, giving 41-year-old Tom Glavine his 299th win. He’ll have his first shot for 300 Tuesday night in Milwaukee, and it’s sort of a shame it’ll be out of town. But, then, more than twenty years ago we saw Tom Seaver, then with the White Sox, pitch his 300th win at Yankee Stadium, and it was a lot of fun. Which, granted, may also have been because it was Phil Rizzuto Day, and the team gave the Scooter a Holy Cow — an actual cow, with a halo affixed to its head — named Huckleberry. We were 9, and we were quite amused. Anyway, cool picture of Glavine last night, right?
