The Bad: Pedro Martinez was scratched from his scheduled start tonight with back soreness. He was supposed to have an x-ray taken today, though the results of it are unknown. The Mets are talking it up to be precautionary, which we can only hope is the case. Pedro is still on schedule to start Opening Day.
The Good: Yusmeiro Petit is starting in his place! Woohoo!
The game is on FoxSports NY, so here's an open thread for game chatter. We're going to have one of these for every regular season game, so you should all have accounts by now and I'd like to get some good chatter going.
