* After hearing yesterday Pedro Martinez was cleared to soft-toss, the word today is he won’t throw today. My guess is he doesn’t want the circus. It will happen sooner or later.
* Orlando Hernandez is reporting no problems throwing off the mound.
* Exhibition game against the Dodgers today. Mike Pelfrey goes for Mets.
* Lastings Milledge will take BP this morning to see if he can play. There’s no sense to rush him, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he sat another day.
* Jose Valentin still a question with a bum ankle.
