A fun night in the world of baseball this evening: There are a whopping seven pitchers starting tonight who are older than 40 years old.

• Roger Clemens, Yankees, 44.
• Jamie Moyer, Phillies, 44.
• Kenny Rogers, Tigers, 42.
• Greg Maddux, Padres, 41.
• Tom Glavine, Mets, 41.
• Woody Williams, Astros, 40.
• John Smoltz, Braves, 40.

We assume this means we're gonna see Julio Franco start for the Mets tonight. By the way: Welcome back, Kenny Rogers! We know this is your second start since returning, but after last October, it's like you never left!
