So just perusing through my inventory of non-live series, going team to team, I get to the Mets and see the 96 MS Glavine in the Mets inventory, with Mets uniform and everything. As a Braves fan, this saddened me. Show me the doll and I'll show you where it hurt the most.
For nostalgia, who remembers the year where your pitcher had a totally different repertoire of pitches but you didn't know what they would be until you got in game? Good times.
What I love about Glavine is he signed with the Mets because he didn't want to make more money on a "rebuilding" team-- The Phillies.
Fast forward to Sept. of '07, and the Phillies chase down the Mets (7 down with 17 to go) and are tied for the lead on the last day.
Glavine gets destroyed by a very weak Marlins team, giving up 7 earned in the 1st two innings on the final day.
In Philly, Jamie Moyer shuts down the Nats and the Phils win the division!
So I love seeing 'ole Tommy in his choke artist uniform.
Brings back great memories...
