It all depends on the type of hitter you're getting in return. Pedro, while he might get injured AGAIN, is gonna be lights out this summer. He always is. Conversely, there's no way Glavine can keep up his current pace. He should keep his ERA under 3.50 and his WHIP under 1.30, but I wouldn't expect the All-Star #'s he put up during the first half.
Take my advice for what it's worth -- I've got both Pedro and Glavine on my team.
au contrer (or however you spell it... damn french and it's extra letters and silent stuf...), good sir. maybe it's just because i've seen too many awsome performances by glavine, but i'd say he'll do just fine the rest of the way. era < 3, whip < 1.15
and with the bats coming around, maybe he'll even get some wins!
Sub-3.00 ERA??! Don't get me wrong, I'd love it, but it's just not gonna happen. He's already been showing some signs of going downhill in the 2nd half. There's no way he'll have a sub-3.00 ERA in the 2nd half. He's just too old. A 162-game season is gonna wear him down near the end.
As long as he produces reasonable numbers, stays healthy and wins a few games, I'll be happy. I'm gonna say right now that his 2nd half ERA wont be below 3.50.
Then again, he is Tom Glavine...and future HOFers tend to buck the trend, so who knows?
