Johan Santana, Stephen Strasburg and John Franco

As you get ready for today's day-night doubleheader, here's our Mets coverage in today's Newsday.

Johan Santana was supposed to start last night's rainout, so he'll go in today's first game. Yesterday, he spoke about the recent lack of run support from his teammates.

The talk in the clubhouse was Stephen Strasburg's big 14-strikeout debut the night before, so Anthony Rieber takes a look at how Strasburg and other youngsters in the National League East affect the division's balanace of power.

Finally, the Mets notebook has items on the team drafting John Franco's son, John Maine's next start, Carlos Beltran and a rotation switch.
