[editor's note, by wiggins] - Last one from Craig (that he can't post himself) - we hope
Tonight Jason Vargas will take the hill while the Mets will send forth Steve Trachsel.
The game is at Shea Stadium and first pitch is at 7:10 p.m.
For our reader in Alaska, please forgive me for what I am about to say: At game time it is expected to be very cool with the highs in the upper fifties and a chance of rain showers.
It will be interesting to watch how Jason handles the conditions and whether he can get a good enough grip on the ball to make his slider break. It could prove to be a difficult task but I have faith in him.
Trachsel pitched in six games last season before a herniated disk put an end to his season. It will be also interesting to see whether he can keep his back warm.
Last I heard a deal was worked out so that the game will be seen in the South Florida area on cable TV. I hope that remains true.
Ichtyomancy is up and running. Be sure to get your picks in on time.
