We’ve got a great one tonight, Tom Glavine-John Smoltz. Kind of wish I could take the night off and watch and enjoy. While that’s the highlight, here’s what else is going on:
-Expect to see Carlos Delgado bat sixth again. He had four good at-bats last night, “the best all year,” he said. But, it’s one night. I think he’ll stay sixth until he gets in a groove. The one thing that could change that are his numbers against Smoltz. Delgado is hitting .344 with four homers vs. Smoltz.
-Shawn Green has also solved Smoltz, hitting .522.
-The Mets should make an announcement today on Friday’s starter. Willie Randolph won’t commit, but I’m saying Orlando Hernandez with Jason Vargas being sent to Triple-A New Orleans.
-No date for when Pedro Martinez will throw off the mound. I think August is a stretch.
