    I don't think you would be happy if they swept.

    The main reason why we havenít fell apart with all of these injuries is because our starting 5 is still intact and we have good defense behind them.



    What does it matter? Their season is over.

    I totally agree. I also think heís got. Little El. Duque to him.

    a little bit to early to be making tom glavine comparisons..also glavine like maddux benifitted from a ridiculous wide strike zone in the 1990's..

    It's never too early for comparisons. That's a silly statement. No one is saying he's already the next Tom Glavine, and no one is guaranteeing he is going to be. All I'm saying is that Nestor actually has better stuff and on top of that he throws from different arm angles and has different deliveries. Tom Glavine probably wouldn't have been nearly as successful in modern baseball unless he adjusted in some of the same ways Cortes has. Bottom line is, from the 2nd half of last year until now, Cortes and Glavine compare favorably for their era in terms of stuff and performance. No one is anointing Cortes to the hall of fame just yet lol.

    If you didnít know who thst pitcher was and just saw the numbers youíd think he is a #1

    But I get the full season stuff. Problem I still belive most of you on here will then say letís see what he can do for 5 straight years. Then after 5 years weíll letís see what he does after 10 years.

    He doesnít move the needle for you guys because he doesnít throw gas, it is thst simple, he doesnít move the needle.
    absolutely not true, IMO Maddux was one of the best pitchers I've ever seen and he certainly didn't throw gas. Throwing gas doesn't make someone a great pitcher, command, control, movement and the ability to execute do.

    The current numbers are nothing short of incredible, it's the lack of any good ones before last yr that is giving me pause

    100% There are plenty of guys, several in the HOF, who couldn't break a pane of glass.

    I agree, yet there are plenty of pitchers who don't throw 98 who have tons of success in the majors. No reason Nestor can't be one of those guys

    that was a heck of a play by Torres. Night and day difference defensively at 2nd base vs SS.

    He's also on pace for about 30hrs
