Good news for the Mets.

It now appears that Tom Glavine will be able to pitch again soon. Nevertheless, it's still an open question whether either he or Pedro Martinez will be in top form for the post-season.

Evening update: Mets survive John Maine's inevitable Dark Night of the Soul (I hope John does, too), coming back from a 7-1 deficit to win 8-7. Nights like tonight, it looks like 1986 again. Nevertheless, I have to agree with Tim Marchman's assessment.

Unfortunately, it appears that, if the Mets do get to the Series, they won't face the same opponent as in '86.
