Opening Day

Well, I’m sold that Tom Glavine will not only win the 10 games that he needs to reach 300 career wins but actually emerge as the front runner for the NL Cy Young award.  Glavine, being the seasoned veteran that he is, showed up for 2007 with his best stuff early on in this game.  That incredible change up that he has mastered over the course of his career left the Cardinals batters weakly waving at the ball only to strike out or softly put the pitch into play.  As is the case every year, Glavine will need to keep his pitches down in the zone and hit his spots.  As the game wore on Glavine tired and failed to do these two things and it led to the lone Cardinals run that he surrendered.  In my opinion, Tom Glavine will 20 games this year due to solid pitching and great run support that the Mets will provide.
