Glavine milestone thread

    We've got one for Bonds. We have one for ARod. So here's one for Glavine. While I'm still inclined to spit vitriol in his general direction, I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge his career. What I'm wondering is if he'll walk away after this season. Here's why: What else is there left for him to accomplish (hi, prhack!); Two Cys, 300 wins, WS ring, WS MVP. Plus, if he retires after this season there is a good chance he'll be one of only seven pitchers with 300 wins and <200 losses. 300 w's is clearly enough for the HOF; less than 200 L's elevates him even among that group. Not bad for a sorry no-good carpet-baggin' two-timin' traitor ;D

    The six current members of the list:
    Christy Mathewson (373-188)
    Clemens (351-183)
    John Clarkson (328-178)
    Eddie Plank (326-194)
    Charley Radbourn (309-195)
    Lefty Grove (300-141)

    Clemens' 168 w/l differential is third behind Cy Young (195) and Mathewson (185), btw.

    I'm sure that ESPN is delighted that Glavine's next shot at No. 300 comes against the Cubs on its Sunday night game. The Cubs mantra, no doubt, will be get to the bully!

    Lot of rich wives and kids have been sitting on their hands during the milestone stallouts of Bonds, ARod and Glavine.

    That Novelist started this thread is perhaps the greatest SJ upset since Simon conceded Beckett's ASG win in his bet with BYH. :D
  5. pretty sure he's walking away after this year--i've seen most of his starts on TV this season--he definitely doesn't have it anymore (not counting last night) and i can't imagine he will see any benefit in coming back for another year

    He put his house in Greenwich on the market already -- it is fair to say that he won't be pitching in Flushing next year.

    It was done begrudgingly. Swallowed 10 ibuprofen before I hit the new topic button ...

    Maybe he'll finally sign with the Kings after the baseball season ends and play some hockey!

    Christine Glavine is SMOKING hot...like an older, tread-still-on-the-tires, haven't-yet-done-copious-amounts-of-drugs version of Britney Spears. Especially when she was pouting last night. Oh Lordie.

    Can't argue with that at all after seeing her last night.

    And was she ever smoking after Mota came in and fucked it up.

    Couldn't decide whether she wanted to kill the piece of shit druggie reliever or the incompetent jackass manager who put him in the game.
