We don’t know about Billy Wagner’s availability if he can’t close tonight. I’m guessing Aaron Heilman, which probably doesn’t give you much confidence.
I hate to sound like a broken record on this (Records? A long time ago, there were these things called records that people used to listen to music on … ), but if the Mets made the effort earlier in the month to see what Mike Pelfrey could do out of the pen, at least they’d have some safety net. Or, if nothing else, an answer.
-Maybe Carlos Delgado tonight. That’s what he’s hoping.
-Expect a suspension for Lastings Milledge for last night’s outburst. The worst part of the incident is not that he was tossed, but let the umps under his skin. He was still burning from the first pitch, not to mention an earlier play.
