The Rotation

Marty Noble at Mets.com, writes about the pitching rotation after the All-Star break:

The Mets' starting rotation, subject to change as New England's weather, has been established -- sort of -- for the games following the All-Star break. Orlando Hernandez, John Maine, Tom Glavine and, probably, Oliver Perez will start in the four-game series against the Reds at Shea Stadium.

Perez's assignment, of course, is contingent on his recovery from the back stiffness that prompted him to be assigned to the disabled list on Monday. The fifth start seemingly would go to the winless Mike Pelfrey or Dave Williams, who made his return to the big leagues on Sunday vs. the Astros.
