Oh, I don't know. Getting three strait quality starts was HUGE for Atlanta. Their first two weeks was just devistating to their bullpen. Knowing that Hudson isn't going to stink the whole year and that Kyle Davies can get out big-name hitters like Wright and Delgado is also very important for Atlanta.
Also, Glavine's outing is important for the Mets. Their biggest weakness is probably their pitching staff less Pedro and Wagner. Glavine dominating against the Braves (whom he's traditionally had gobs of trouble with) is important. Additionally, seeing The Bad Zambrano get worked is a reminder that the back of their rotation really does need some help.
I agree that it doesn't tell us a lot about who's going to be ahead come August, but there are a few important things to take from this series.
Oh, I forgot to add: this series also underlined the debth the Braves have as well as the lack of depth the Mets have. These will both be important factors over the course of the season.
