Willie Randolph told reporters that Nelson Figueroa will start Thursday for the Mets. That means Johan Santana will start Friday.
That means Friday night is changeup vs. changeup; lefty vs. lefty; Phillies vs. Mets; Cole Hamels vs. Johan Santana.
Here’s how the Phillies/Mets series looks to shake out:
- Friday: Cole Hamels vs. Johan Santana
- Saturday: Jamie Moyer vs. Oliver Perez
- Sunday: Adam Eaton vs. Mike Pelfrey
