TONIGHT’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

Matt Chico faces new 300-game winner Tom Glavine as the Nationals play host to the Mets. 7 p.m., Ch. 20, MASN2

HE SAID WHAT?

“He’s doing a lot of public-service work, and I think that’s terribly important. I think it’s more important for us to keep getting the message out.” — Bud Selig on Jason Giambi

TWT FIVE ” QUOTES FROM PHIL RIZZUTO

1. “I like radio better than television because if you make a mistake on radio, they don’t know. You can make up anything on the radio.”

2. “They’ve got so many Latin players we’re going to have to get a Latin instructor up here.”

3. “I’ll take anyway to get into the Hall of Fame. If they want a batboy, I’ll go in as a batboy.”

4. “And that ball is out of here. No, it’s not. Yes, it is. No, it’s not. What happened?”

5. “Holy cow!”

WEEKEND PREVIEW: THE BEST OF THE WEEKEND IN SPORTS

Mystics at Connecticut Sun

Will a win Sunday in the last regular season game for the Mystics be a precursor to an unexpected run through the WNBA playoffs?

3M Performance 400

No Chevrolet has won at Michigan since Jeff Gordon in 2001. We’re not sure whether that means anything. A sleeper for Sunday: Bill Elliott (seven wins there).

Little League World Series

Mark Waguespack and Canaan Cropper lead Salisbury, Md., tomorrow against a team from Chandler, Ariz., in the first game of pool play.

Cardinals at Cubs

The Cardinals are streaking. The Cubs are slumping. This midwest baseball rivalry is much more interesting than it would have been last week.

Cincinnati Masters

Nadal, Roddick and Djokovic are gone, but world No. 1 Roger Federer is still on track to win his final tune-up event before the U.S. Open.
