After flirting with having Bartolo Colon pitch on short rest Friday, the Mets intend to stick with their original plan. So Robert Gsellman will open the series against the Phillies, followed by Colon on Saturday. Ideally, the Mets will have clinched before Sunday. That way, Noah Syndergaard can throw a couple of innings in the regular-season finale as a tune-up for the wild-card game rather than making a full start Sunday.

In the fourth, David Ortiz walked and was pinch-run for by Brock Holt. Ortiz received a pretty nice cheer as he left the field, but nothing too special. That ends his career at Yankee Stadium. He will probably go down as the most impactful figure in the rivalry since Babe Ruth.

Yankee Stadium has become Fenway South. Xander Bogaerts just tied the game in the fourth inning with a home run and the crowd erupted. It is 1-1.

David Ortiz got mostly a standing O in his first at-bat, then a K. CC Sabathia just struck him out after a lot of fans -- many with Red Sox jerseys on -- cheered him at Yankee Stadium.

Doc Rivers said he doesn't foresee KG accepting a coaching job this season: "I don't think he wants to coach. He's not that crazy. Who would ever want to do that? ... There's no way that's going to happen. I think he has a teaching future. This [situation] is as organic as it could be. I just told him to come around and figure it out. Do whatever you want. Whatever he does, I'm good with, because I do think he can have a very positive impact on us."

Doc Rivers on Kevin Garnett's presence at Clippers training camp: "KG was phenomenal today. This morning, before practice, he had a teaching clinic that you would pay a lot of money to see. It was great. It was great for Blake [Griffin] and [DeAndre Jordan] and the young guys as well. It's great to have him around. He's a great teacher. We know him as a great player. I knew him as a great teacher. He'll be really good for us."

Judging by the sheer number of David Ortiz jerseys outside Yankee Stadium tonight -- including fans wearing both Yankees AND Red Sox apparel, Big Papi probably can expect a warm reception on the occasion of his final game in the Bronx. We asked a few fans -- those wearing Yankees gear only for this exercise -- whether they plan to cheer or boo him and why. Believe it or not, despite the bitter rivalry, almost all the answers we got were family friendly.

In addition to playing at a quicker pace, the Knicks may use more pick and roll this season. Derrick Rose confirmed that they've been running pick 'a lot' of pick-and-roll thus far in training camp. It seems like this will emerge mostly early in the offense. The club will use the triangle in half court.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Good sign for team chemistry? Jeff Horancek and the Knicks wrapped up lunch yesterday at 1 pm and "the guys were still sitting there, talking to eachother until 2:30, a quarter to 3. We had to turnaround at 4:30 and have another praictce. So I think these guys really like each other."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Late in close games, Derrick Rose expects the Knicks to use a pick-and-roll to get a shot. "I don't think it's going to be the triangle. I think it's probably going to be 1-3 pick-and-roll or 3-1 pick-and-roll. Either me or Melo will have to create for someone to take the shot."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Derrick Rose said the triangle offense feels ‘foreign' thus far, but he's optimistic about it. "It's like 40 to 50 options on one side of the floor. It's like giving you your space for creativity. It's like if you're doing it the right way, you could do everything you want."
