Zito @ Marquis (Zito
pitching well lately, but I’m not chancing it in Coors

***Siano saysIf
you’re pitching Smoltz you have to pitch Pedro so I say Pitch on Pedro. He will give the Mets another reason to start counting down the days until Jets and
Giants football. Snell coming off a decent start vs Detroit is an interesting
gamble vs Oakland if you’re in the chasing wins mood. Agree on
rest.”
