Pedro Martinez (2-1, 6.57) vs. the Yankees hitters.

Sidney Ponson (4-1, 3.88) vs. the Mets hitters.

Notes: Never thought this would get posted before first pitch. Getting here was fine. Parking was the problem. … Kei Igawa is in the house. If Sir Sidney gets knocked around early, you’re going to see a lot of the K-Man.

Back later with updates. But lots of newspaper work to do first.

UPDATE, 9:04 p.m.: Sam Borden just finished his 10-mile walk and arrived at Shea Stadium. Third inning, not bad.

UPDATE, 10:10 p.m.: Sorry for the lack of updates. Three stories to do.

How about that Sidney Ponson? As I predicted, he would clearly be better than Pedro Martinez.

Seriously, it just goes to show that you can’t predict everything. Regardless of what kind of person he is, Ponson had been pitching poorly before he was released. He’s been one hit away from big trouble all night but has dived, ducked, dipped and dodged out of trouble.

UPDATE, 10;37 p.m.: So much for the demise of Bobby Abreu. … Meanwhile Kyle Farnsworth is pitching for the first time since he had the sitches. 9-0 seems safe, however.

UPDATE, 10:41 p.m.: So of course he walks the first hitter. You can’t make this stuff up.

UPDATE, 11:17 p.m.: Finally, the pefect role for the K-Man. Up 9-0. Bet he walks somebody.
