Though, it appears that Torres will take the start this afternoon --- with Colon heading back to the DR to be with his mom.  Seems her condition's worsened. 

  1. Bartolo Colon scratched. Mother "extremely ill." Carlos Torres to start. #mets



Reading that he'll go on the Bereavement List tomorrow.  Best wishes to his family.

  1. Plan is for Bartolo Colon to go on bereavement leave tomorrow, which will cover games in Oakland and allow extra pitcher there.



    Adam Rubin         @AdamRubinESPN
  1. Because #Mets have Vegas AAA affiliate, cannot get player here today. Will add pitcher tomorrow -- possibly Matsuzaka activated.




Cubs lineup:
Alcantara cf,
Baez 2b,
Rizzo 1b,
Castro ss,
Valbuena 3b,
Ruggiano rf,
Castillo c,
Szczur lf,
Hendricks p

@AdamRubinESPN

Sounds like Daniel Murphy will get day off vs. Scott Kazmir in Oakland on Tuesday.

When was the last time a guy started a game after pitching the previous day?  Probably one of those knuckleballers in the 70's like Wilbur Wood.


Torres is clearly getting Pedro Feliciano'ed .  I hope he saves his money.

Ah, that sucks for Colon. Too bad, too, because he dominates these get away day games. I saw from Rubin that the Mets are like 6 games over .500 in day games. That's pretty significant considering we are 130 or so games into the season.

Yup.

Only in this instance, he's got the bonus "HURT ME!!" angle of actually being able to take the ball in the 1st inning, in the event of an emergency.

Knowing how much he's been used throughout, you have to figure that they're banking on the Cubs being aggressive /getting themselves out today ------- otherwise, he's probably not going to last more than 3-4 innings.

..................which could potentially do a bang-up job on the bullpen, depending on the kind of contest it becomes.

Hopefully, for the sake of some of the arms ---- it's a sleepy afternoon matinee, rather than a slam-bangfest.

Get ready for 2-1 game.  Mets headed to Oak after the game.  Cubs headed home.   Neither team looking to be in Queens for very long today.
