Orlando Hernandez said he’s feeling “much better,” but he will still miss a start. He won’t go Saturday as I speculated, but in the Atlanta series, Sept. 10-12. Mike Pelfrey will go Friday, and Tom Glavine on Saturday (getting an extra day of rest) and presumably Pedro Martinez on Sunday.
-Willie Randolph said he might try to give Jose Reyes and/or David Wright a day off in this series.
-The Mets lead the majors with 176 stolen bases.
-Shawn Green in right today. So much, it seems, for Lastings Milledge getting the bulk of the playing time. He has to learn to hit the curve.
