Pitching in

I figured (or hoped) months ago that Trachsel coming back would make a difference if the Mets were still in it. A fresh arm down the stretch without need of a move. He usually goes deep into games.

Ishii was inconsistant, but now Seo is in, and pitchin very well in that spot.

Mets wont move Trashy to the pen, and they dont want to go to a 6 man rotation.

Do the Mets move an arm for a bat?
Which arm?
I would have said Glavine a month or so ago, but he may still prove to be an asset if the Mets are gonna make a run for it. Look how well he pitched last time out.

If they trade Trash and he excels somewhere else, well, that makes for bad press about Omar and the Mets.

If the Mets can stay in it and make a run for the wildcard (or on the outside, the division), its going to come down to pitching, and how do the Mets make the best of what they have available?

You cant let Trachsels arm and experience go to waste here. But you want Seo in the mix.

If you were makin the calls, what would you do?

We have the Jersey devil here. Kinda like a werewolf, but without the wolfisity.

And I tip my hat for your keen perception into my name, which should be pronounced Ze-von in honor of the late great Warren Zevon.

My first name actually is Warren, but thats top secret information so everyone please disavow any knowledge of this sentence.

You're our hundredth member.



Last thing a guy should do is fear bad press.

I don't know. Two possible options are (1) Trading Glavine, and (2) bullpenning Seo.

Yeah Homey, I'm familiar with the Jersey Devil.

That was especially big when The Blair Witch Project was in theaters.

And just so you don't feel like you're missing our typical CPF greeting, Welcome Abordick!

I think all GMs do is fear bad press,lol.

I like your options.
It still comes back to Glavine if they go the trade route, and Seo is pitching well but he dont have the seniority Trash does.
Cripes, so many things could go wrong in this scenario.
And I do believe its important.

(watch trash come back, pitch like garbage, and glavine pitches a no hitter 1st time out with his new team,lol)

You know, Trax has been a solid back of rotation starter ever since he went down for the Norfolk cure back in 2001. I'm hoping that he comes back from his injury in good form - he's a good guy to have on your staff when he's doing well.

I still like the idea of a sixer, at least a couple of times through.

i agree.
He gives you quality innings for the most part.
I was hoping he would make a difference at this point of the season.
Now i read they are putting off his return.
I hope they make the right moves here.

Every move counts from here until when the fat lady starts singin her tune.

So Glavine goes, Seo stays, and Trachsel rounds it out.

How about Zambrano?
I forgot about him.
Him and glavine have been kinda identically inconsistant.
And Glav has pitched well recently.

How bout we stick Zambo in the pen and go with
Pedro
Glav
Benson
Trashy
Seo
