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.
Four no-hitters so far this year. There were several last year too, right?
There was a time when the Mets and the Padres were the only teams never to have a pitcher throw a no-hitter. The Mets were known for their pitching and had many pitchers who went on to throw no-hitters for other teams (Seaver, Nolan Ryan, Gooden, David Cone...) but never with the Mets. Johan Santana pitched the lone no-hitter by a pitcher in a Mets uniform. The Padres finally had one this year.
He better be great on STs to have any chance. There were very few highlights were he was actually blocked, so it’s hard to tell if he can play LB at this level.
I wish him luck and hope he can show enough to make the PS.
