Happy Monday Harvey Day! The Mets travel to San Francisco tonight to take on the Giants (I guess that’s not really surprising. A surprise would be the Mets travel to San Francisco to take on the Golden State Warriors, which I’d also pay to see). Anyway starting for the Mets today is new anointed All-Star Matt Harvey who is looking to rebound from his worst start in his career where he allowed 5 ER. On the season Matt is 7-2 with a 2.27 ERA while pitching 123.0 innings and a league leading 141 strikeouts. He faced the Giants last year where he pitched 6.0 innings allowing 4 hits, 3 runs, 2 earned while walking 3 and striking out 7. The Giants have the following numbers against him: Belt 0-2 Blanco 0-3 Posey 1-2 Scutaro 1-2, 2B Crawford 0-2 Lincecum 0-2 Usually I leave pitchers off of the batting stats list but thanks to fate, Harvey will be facing off against Lincecum again! Tim is 4-9 over 17 games this year with a 4.66 ERA. In his last 23.2 innings, 4 games, he has pitched with a 4.56 ERA, so fairly consistent with his season numbers. Last year he was very good against the Mets pitching 12.0 innings in two starts allowing only 2 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against Tim: Wright 2-20 Young 3-18 Omar 5-14, 2B Davis 3-15 Murphy 5-14, 2 2B Buck 0-4 Byrd 0-3 Lets Go Mets! Tweet
