* David Wright had a miserable road trip and his swing is getting a little long. It might be time for a game off. Neither Wright nor Willie Randolph said he has a Home Run Derby hangover, but he’s not had a great second half so far.
* Keep an eye on Carlos Delgado. When he homers, he does so in bunches. He had two Thursday in Philly. It looks like his stroke is back.
* Steve Trachsel going tonight against Colorado. He’s 8-6 lifetime against the Rockies, including throwing a one-hit, 1-0 shutout on this date in 2003. … Jose Valentin is day-to-day with a strained right hamstring. … Rehab for Cliff Floyd and Ramon Castro are going a little slow. … Reports are encouraging on Brian Bannister. … Pedro Martinez is wearing a support boot on his right foot for stabilization. They aren’t taking any chances this time.
