This will be a tough game for the Mets in my opinion because I basically have no faith in Victor Zambrano anymore. It's basically a crapshoot every time he's out there, and now that Steve Trachsel's back I have the feeling that Zambrano is pitching to stay in the rotation.

Trachsel was finally activated from the 60-day disabled list, and in the best news in weeks Danny Graves was designated for assignment to make room.

Mike Jacobs gets another start at first tonight. He saw seven pitches in four at-bats last night, so I'm guessing he was a tad overanxious.
