Glavien 4th On SI's Top 10 2nd Half Stories

John Donovan at Si.com writes about the top 10 stories in the 2nd half of the season and Tom Glavine comes in at number 4:

The Mets' crafty lefty -- aren't all lefties "crafty," just like all undersized shortstops are "scrappy?" -- is three wins away from becoming the 23rd player to win 300 games in a career. When he gets there, he'll likely be the last to crack the barrier for awhile, unless Randy Johnson (with 284) talks his balky back into cooperating. It took Glavine 10 starts to get his last three wins, so this might not be pretty. But he'll almost certainly get there, joining Roger Clemens and Greg Maddux among active players in the club. Next up after Glavine and possibly Johnson to 300? In his analysis, James says it is "likely" that at least one more active player will make it, but it's a long way for everyone and no one stands out as a front-runner.
