On the day after, which the Mets always say is important, “Pedro Martinez”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=4875 said he’s fine.
“I’m good,” said Martinez, who will start Sunday against Houston at Shea. Martinez’s pitch count yesterday was 75 and anticipates it being bumped up against the Astros.
-Both David Wright and Jose Reyes in the line-up tonight. Willie Randolph said he wants to give them a rest. One could sit tomorrow and the other of Friday, which would enable both to have two days off because of the Thursday off day.
-Carlos Delgado is starting to hit. He has 22 homers, so an 11th straight 30-homer season is possible.
-Ruben Gotay for Luis Castillo tonight at second.
-Orlando Hernandez will pitch the WEEK of Sept. 10, said Willie Randolph, and it could be anytime that week, not just the Atlanta series.
