Damn, Aaron.

After last night's 2 innings in relief of Tom Glavine, Aaron Heilman's line for the month of August looks like this: 7.2 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 12 K.

Glavine himself gave up nine hits, but only Jason Bay's solo shot scored a run. I got to hand it to the guy, he's eaten up innings (150, which means that 2006 option is going to vest. Sorry fellas.)and hasn't given up as many runs (4.26 ERA) as I was expecting. I thought he was going to be awful, but instead he's been Kirk Rueter ca. 2001.

Beltran started and looked quite good. No visible twitching in the batter's box or happy feet in center. He went 1-2 with 2 walks and a very clean steal; he also scored from 1st on what should have been a single. He's done that twice in the last week or so. It's fun to watch.

Yusmeiro Petit did the nasty to the Portland Sea Dogs yesterday: 8 IP, 3 H, 0 BB, 12 K. (asssist: metsblog). I'm happy we still have Milledge, but I'm happier we still have him.

Gotta cut this short today. Off to Shea for a pregame event. Don't want to get into it though, for fear of getting dooced.
