The tarp is already on the field and rain is expected tonight. As of now, the game should start on time, but the forecast isn’t great. These are the worse kinds of days for managers. Willie Randolph can’t like the idea of starting this, playing two innings, then sitting through a long delay and lose Pedro Martinez.
Of course, with the way the schedule is these days, making up games is difficult. Day-nighter tomorrow? Who knows? Could happen.
Notebook: Xavier Nady has a bruised right list and listed day-to-day. … Cliff Floyd expected to play the outfield in a rehab assignment tonight at Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Back later with lineups.
