Stormy Monday

Game 5 of the NLCS has been postponed by rain. Now both pitchers get an additional day of rest which I can only think helps the Mets. Glavine, who pitches poorly on 3-days rest now doesn't have to.

On the flipside, Carpenter gets an extra day of rest as well. But I don't think that will make as big a difference for him as it will for Glavine.

Either way, it wont matter much if guys come out of the Cardinals' bullpen and pitch batting practice they way they did last night.

It's a good series so far. The Cardinals may have missed a great opportunity last night but the Mets are still in for a fight. The series looks like a good bet to go 7 games regardless of the outcome tomorrowt. Glavine looks like a scary matchup but at the same time the Mets can't be counting on Carpenter pitching poorly twice in a row. It could all come down who the Mets Game 7 mystery starter will be and whether Jeff Weaver can keep up his outstanding post-season.
