Hey! Sosa's facing the Cubs tonight!
No, not this Sosa. That will have to wait another month, till the Cubs take their trip to Arlington, Texas.Meanwhile, Derrek Lee will likely not play tonight, nor tomorrow, since he has not yet returned to New York. And why is this?
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
So far this year he's been pretty good for the Mets, although it's only two starts.
Rich Hill had the worst start of his year so far in his last outing, going five innings and giving up five runs, including two homers. Still, he struck out seven, and walked only three, so by and large, I don't think his overall game has suffered. He had the worst start of his career against the Mets on August 5, 2005, giving up seven runs in a little more than an inning. But that was the "old" Rich Hill.
Right? You buying this?
Mike Fontenot is wearing Mark Grace's old number 17. Or, as I thought as I saw him, "He's wearing Felix Pie's old #17." That makes Fontenot the sixth player to wear #17 since Grace's departure. The other five: Bobby Hill, Calvin Murray, Adam Greenberg (yup, Adam Greenberg), John Mabry and Pie.
Tonight's game is on CSN and SNY, Extra Innings, and the Mediacenter.
