Naturally, the first question to Willie Randolph was about Saturday’s starter:
1) He said Mike Pelfrey and Phil Humber are options from the minor leagues. Pelfrey is pitching tonight, but GM Omar Minaya said he’ll be kept to a pitch count of around 40 to keep him in the mix. Dave Williams and Jason Vargas aren’t being considered.
2) Randolph said it would not be Pedro Martinez.
3) Randolph also said Jorge Sosa will stay in the bullpen.
