Open Chat: Dodgers-Mets (Tuesday)

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Some people might have given up on Tom Glavine last year, but he has an ERA of 1.00 in 27 innings this season. Two of those games came against the weak-hitting Expos, however.

Glavine starts against the Dodgers tonight. Feel free to chat about the game here in the comments.

Postgame update: Although I agree with Jim Tracy that with the Dodger rotation stumbling, an extra reliever is more valuable than a mediocre pinch-hitter, John Wiebe is right - the last reliever in the bullpen shouldn't be the one you turn to in a close game, when all the relievers have rested for two nights.

Postgame update 2 On the occasion of Mike Piazza's record-tying home run as a catcher, Rich Lederer looks at Piazza's career. Like always, Lederer goes deeper than anyone else in chronicling the Dodger that got away.

To Piazza’s credit, he is number one in OPS despite playing in two home ballparks that are among the toughest on hitters in all of baseball. He has a significant advantage over his peers in OPS adjusted for park effects.
