    Suffice it to say Randy Tate is 55 years old, hasn't pitched since 1975 and recorded only one fewer out than Oliver Perez last night in San Francisco.

    i suppose it's wrong, but i had already charted this up as a loss, though for the travel — the one thing that shouldn't have affected perez. this is one where you shrug off the blowout and move on. although you really start to wonder about ollie's place in the rotation.
    by the way, in the mets' previous four series, they achieved a certain symmetry: 0 wins against the braves; 1 against the rockies; 2 against the marlins; and 3 against the dodgers. lord knows it ain't the cycle, but it re-established some sort of order in the clubhouse, if not the baseball universe. and tonight, pedro gets to show us all what he learned on his spring break. i'll be watching, with breath held on every pitch.

    Perez was positively Glavinesque last night :(

    I made the same comment to a friend of mine during the game.
