Jeremi Gonzalez makes his first Major League start of the year for the Mets, and Dana Eveland makes the first Major League start of his career for the Brewers. (Hey, look: Dana's split stats!) The bats came alive last night, so Ned is going with the same batting order tonight, while Willie Randolph is plugging in a couple of relacements: Chris Woodward for Kaz Matsui, and Jose Valentin in left for Cliff Floyd.
Interesting side note from last night's game: according to Lee Sinins, Jose Lima has moved "up" to second worst on the career RSAA (Runs Saved Above Average) list. I don't know anything about how that stat is calculated, but I think it means Jose Lima is pretty bad. Jeremi Gonzalez probably has several years to go to reach that kind of level, but here's to giving him a boost tonight.
