Inside Pitch: Mets prepared for Bonds, Giants

Barry Bonds might be having a miserable season by his standards, but he still has the respect of the Mets' pitching staff, which vows to work him carefully during their three-game series that begins Monday at San Francisco.

However, that doesn't mean the Mets will continually pitch around Bonds, who only has one homer this season.

"The circumstances of the game will dictate how we pitch him," Mets manager Willie Randolph said. "I still have a tremendous amount of respect for him."

Should Bonds' career numbers against the Mets be for one season, it would be of MVP caliber: .293 average with 34 homers and 131 RBIs, a .397 on-base percentage and .521 slugging percentage.

REPLAY: Right-hander Victor Zambrano's bumpy start hit another pothole Sunday when he gave up five runs on seven hits -- including a fourth-inning grand slam to Brian Giles -- in a 7-4 loss to the Padres.

Zambrano, who is 1-2 with a 9.64 ERA, did not come out for the fifth inning. He still is scheduled to pitch Friday at Atlanta.

NOTES, QUOTES

  • CF Carlos Beltran remains day-to-day with a tight right hamstring. "If he can't give me a window, maybe we should consider bringing somebody up," manager Willie Randolph said.

  • 1B Carlos Delgado has 377 career homers, which ties him for 57th on the career list with Norm Cash. With two more hits Sunday, Delgado has hit safely in 15 of his last 17 games.

  • SS Jose Reyes started the season hitting in eight of his first nine games, but he has been in a tailspin since, with his average dropping from .326 on April 14 to .234 with a .272 on-base percentage now.

    ROSTER REPORT

    MEDICAL WATCH: RHP Juan Padilla is lost for the year with elbow surgery.

    2B Anderson Hernandez is on the 15-day disabled list due to a bulging disc in his back.

    CF Carlos Beltran is day-to-day with hamstring tightness.
