Woody Williams Tom Glavine
4 - 10, 5.47 7 - 6, 4.39

Astros VS Mets, round 3. Another matchup of "veterans" tonight as 40 year old Woody Williams goes up against 41 year old Tom Glavine. Glavine's career numbers sit at 297-197, with a 3.49 ERA while Woody's numbers are 128-111 with a career 4.15 ERA. One of these 2 is probably a future hall of famer... the other isn't... can you guess which one is which?

Woody is coming off a back to back positive starts, both of which giving up less than 3 ER's in 6+ innings. Hopefully he can do the same tonight. Glavine got shelled last time out going 6 innings and giving up 6 earned runs... hopefully we see the same from him as well.

Bah, no Berkman tonight.. what's up with that? I can only assume he's getting a night off due to the sore hand he's been having trouble with. If you noticed, he let go of the bat multiple times int he last week(almost killing Carlos Lee twice). I would be a little surprised if this was just a scheduled day off so close to the All-Star break.
