Crap! Glavine could miss the rest of the season!
The New York Daily News is reporting in its Sunday editions that Tom Glavine's health and his season are in jeopardy, what could be a huge blow to the pitcher as well as to the Mets' hopes of reaching the World Series. Sources told the newspaper that the southpaw has had coldness in a finger on his pitching hand, and that the cause of the condition is not yet known.

The Daily News reports doctors are unsure whether the problem is related to a blood clot or possibly a "knot" in an artery near his left shoulder. Depending on the diagnosis, Glavine could miss little time or the remaineder of the season. The "knot" could require invasive surgery, while a clot might be able to be dissolved and limit the time lost.

Reached last night by the newspaper, Glavine's agent, Gregg Clifton, said he could confirm that "diagnostic tests" are planned for this week, but he declined to elaborate.

2. Damn that sucks
As a Braves fan I hate to see that. I always liked Glavine even when he did join the "enemy"

Even though he seemd to have cooled a bit this second half. . he is still a must have for the playoffs for you guys. I hope he misses as little time as possible cause as much as I dislike the mets.. I want to see him in the playoffs one more.

3. We'll trudge onward.
Best case scenario, Maine proves he's no fluke and maybe Pelfrey or Oliver come up for a few quality starts.
