Marty Noble gives us the scoop in his latest Mets.com opus. Lots of tidbits crammed into this piece, including:
- Howard Johnson will almost certainly inherit most of Rick Down's hitting coach duties.
- Lastings Milledge has been recalled for tonight's game and will likely be the everyday left fielder.
- Either Sandy Alomar Jr. or David Newhan will be sent down to accommodate Milledge's arrival (likely Alomar).
- Oliver Perez will probably start Sunday in the series finale against the Reds.
- Dave Williams (not Mike Pelfrey) will probably be sent to New Orleans to make room for Perez.
- Pelfrey has only earned a temporary stay of execution, as Jorge Sosa is expected to make just a single rehab start within the next week before rejoining the team.
