Always fun to watch young Wood pitch. I can’t watch him today, though, as I’m at work.
Jon Niese has been pitching well for the Mets, and the Braves have not been scorching the ball lately, so this likely will be tight. It’s getting hard to feel much urgency about these games, what with a huge lead and all.
I trust the team doesn’t share my lethargy. J. Upton is not playing. No sense pushing him if he’s not feeling spry. Here’s who is playing: Heyward, Simmons, Freeman, Johnson, Laird, Terdo, BJ, Janish, Wood.
