Panes Of Glass Everywhere Rejoice

I’m sitting here, flipping through the channels, and I finally remember that the Mets are playing the Phils tonight. Should be an enjoyable game, two offensive power-houses (at least by National League standards). It’s 3–1 when I tune in, Phils lead, in the bottom of the second. Jamie Moyer is on the mound.

I’m not all that shocked, but he’s topping out at 78 miles-per-hour. The Mets score an ugly run to move within one, then the side is retired. Tom Glavine takes the hill, and he tops out at 79 miles-per-hour. Someone call Elias, I think this is the first time in major league history that two non-knuckleballers have faced off and neither has broken 80 MPH.

Carlos Delgado just struck out on a 65 MPH slurve. I think Moyer and Glavine are trying to one-up each other, see who can throw the slowest ball. It’s really something to behold, and I highly recommend you tune in, especially if there’s no paint to watch dry in your house.

Glavine just muscled up and hit 83 on the gun, putting an end to the septuagenarian fun. Party pooper.

Alright, I'll bite. Why are panes of glass rejoicing? Do fastballs break windows everywhere or something? That reference flew over my head, and I'm sure I'll feel stupid when you tell me what you mean, but... I'm lost.

But I bet you the two starting catchers' hands have never felt this good after any game in MLB history!

Neither pitcher throws hard enough to break a pane of glass.

It's a baseball expression, probably an old one, my dad used to say it all the time, usually when Jimmy Key was pitching.

Never heard it before. Maybe it's a Philly thing? Or I might be stupid, like I said.

Speaking of sort throwing lefties, the King: Jimmy Key. Damn, I was going to reference him in my Mark Redman post I was working on for tomorrow! I actually was just working on my draft now, and had already told my Jimmy Key story!

Short version: We were at the bar last Friday, and the Mets-Braves game was on, and Mark Redman was pitching... more to come.

You had me doubting myself, but it's widely known...

Looking forward to the Jimmy Key post, I have my fingers crossed that my first-born will be a soft-tossing lefty, guaranteed 20-year career in the bigs.

I'm Watching the Giants vs Padres (Giants WON) Kruke & Kipe are calling the game on the TV side. They said a good pitcher should "Break 3 Panes Of Glass" for good form & velocity. Pitch thru the hitter, catcher & Ref. We LOVE our radio AND TV side guys in the Bay Area!
Do you guys know what the "Mendoza Line" is? hu? Hu? HU?!
