Butler would have to be better at LB than....
Speed, Adams and Franklin. That’s who he’s competing against. And now you can add the newly signed FA, Jackson. The odds of Butler being better than Glasgow at ST’s are very, very small.
Lots of Mets pitchers have had 1-hitters. I was at a game in which Tom Glavine had not given up a hit. Some no-name player broke up the no-hitter in the top of the 8th or 9th inn. I also attended one when Matt Harvey had a one-hitter going into the 7th. His was broken up in the 7th, I believe.
Glasgow isn’t on the team for his ability as a linebacker. He’s on the team because he’s a Special Teams ace.
Ballard got a tip about Glasgow when the kid was a freshman. Kept his eye on him for four years. We used a 6 on him. Our last pick of the 2020 season but it was a 6. In other words, we really, really like him. And he had a very good rookie year.
So if Butler is beating out Glasgow, he’s going to have to do it on ST’s, not as a LB.
