Sunday morning odds and ends

Good morning/afternoon from Florida.

Sunday morning odds and ends


Good morning/afternoon from Florida.

A few things to get to.

1) Brett Myers will indeed pitch Wednesday, manager Charlie Manuel confirmed today. That's not exactly a shocker, but its the first time anyone with the Phillies has definitively said that Myers will return to the rotation against the Mets.

2) Joe Blanton will make his Phillies debut Tuesday, the first game at Shea against the Mets. The newly-acquired righthander hasn't given up a run against New York in 15 career innings (two starts). He pitched eight scoreless innings against them last season.

3) Pedro Martinez will not pitch against the Phillies thanks to a sore groin.

Here are the match-ups:

Tuesday: LHP Johan Santana vs. RHP Joe Blanton

Wednesday: RHP John Maine vs. RHP Brett Myers

Thursday: LHP Oliver Perez vs. LHP Jamie Moyer
