…to get run by home plate umpire Mark Wegner? The Astros’ 1B took exception to a called third strike that ended the away half of the 5th inning with the bases loaded. Said pitch by Tom Glavine was low and inside, but just what kind career numbers are required for a player to get in Wegner’s face the way Bagwell did without being ejected?

The Mets’ home opener against the Astros is currently delayed in the top of the 6th ; the billboard (advertising MSG and Fox Sports NY) just beneath the tannoy in center field is apparently a distraction to Houston’s Morgan Ensberg and needs to be covered…and the Shea crew are having an incredible amount of difficulty getting the job done. On the bright side, Jim Duquette gets a bit of fresh air and exercise.
