Things I already admired about Tom Glavine the Met (really).
A one-hit shutout of the Rockies that sounded as close to the real thing as I’ve ever heard.
Two legitimate All-Star berths.
Eight innings, two hits and no walks to win one for Ralph Kiner.
Domination of the Dodgers and the Cardinals when it counted most.
At least 15 decisions he deserved to have go his way even if they didn’t.
Pitching past missing teeth and finger numbness.
The professional bunting and the emergency pinch-hitting.
And now No. 300 in a Mets uniform.
