Tom Glavine will start Game 1, which comes as no surprise to anybody. Mets just made it official today. No word yet on Cliff Floyd’s status. He wants to play, says he could pinch-hit, but he’s hobbling.
They’ll wait until the last minute because that’s what teams do in this case. If he’s sidelined, he’ll be replaced by either Ricky Ledee or Lastings Milledge. Neither have been spotted so far. Same goes for Dave Williams, who could start Game 4 over Oliver Perez.
Beautiful day here. Mets now taking BP. Too bad they don’t they play these games during the day when it’s nice and warm, but baseball, like all sports, sold it soul to TV years ago.
