We won’t know who has the advantage of tonight’s rainout until the series ends. Even then, it might be a moot point.
On one hand, after the breakout game last night by the offense, if you’re the Mets you want to keep that going. On the flip side, Tom Glavine is back on full rest. Then again, so is Jeff Weaver.
Albert Pujols has a tight right hamstring, so the day off can only help him.
As of now, Chris Carpenter is set for Game 6 at Shea. That’s the only thing I don’t like about the setup of the remaining series. If the Mets lose tomorrrow, you have to like Carpenter over John Maine. To me, that makes Game 5 hugely pivotal.
