Old home week for some Mets

The Mets seem to be on a reunion tour, or a You Can Go Home Again tour. Bon Jovi could sponsor it.

First, it was Carlos Delgado in Toronto, where he went 3-for-11 with two runs, a double and an RBI in the Mets’ three-game series at the Rogers Centre.

Now it’s on to Boston, where Pedro Martinez will pitch on Wednesday, in an appearance he doesn’t want to make.

Then, on Friday, they’ll send Orlando Hernandez to the mound at Yankee Stadium, where he’s sure to get the warmest ovation for a Met in the Bronx since interleague play began in 1997.

John Rocker just needs to shut up. Who asked him? Why is he even talking about this? Though, it does raise some questions about how professional sports leagues follow through on their fines and other punishments.

And then there’s Joe Mikulik, a manager in the South Atlantic League for the Rockies’ Asheville (N.C.) affiliate. He, um, got a little upset at a call on Sunday.
