* The Mets play Houston at Kissimmee. They have lost three straight. Pitching for the Mets will be Tom Glavine, followed by Jorge Sosa, Billy Wagner, Aaron Heilman and Jon Adkins.
* Glavine had been away from the Mets the past two days to attend to family business, but said he got in the necessary work to start. “I did everything I needed to do expect cover first base, but I know where that is,” he joked.
* Pitching for Houston: Woody Williams, Brian Moehler.
* David Wright, Jose Reyes and Jose Valentin didn’t make the trip. The rest of the projected regulars did.
* Adkins has had a rough go so far, giving up four runs on four hits and a walk. He needs to step it up.
* The Mets are hopeful Chan Ho Park’s visa issues will be resolved in time for him to make tomorrow’s start against Boston at Fort Myers. If not, Aaron Sele is expected to start.
* Orlando Hernandez remains on schedule to return to the rotation Thursday.
