With the success Matt Harvey has had this season, it's no surprise fans in New York were holding their breath waiting for word on Matt Harvey.  Well, hold your breath no more.  Harvey, who initially brushed off concern about having to leave his start this weekend, is expected to make his next start which should come Thursday. According to Chris Iseman and Dave Wilson of MLB.com, Harvey experienced tightness in his lower back which caused him to be pulled from his start on Saturday.  Harvey said he'd experienced that tightness before and could have pitched through it.  However, manager Terry Collins did not want to take any chances.  It was a cautious move, and a smart move.  But fortunately, Harvey was right and the issue was no big deal.  The team says he will make his next start. "Everything's normal, everything's fine," Harvey said. "I woke up today and didn't feel anything. We're good to go." Harvey has Mets fans excited for the first time in a long time.  The team likely will not compete for the division this year, but they are heading in the right direction.  In fact, Harvey has already drawn comparisons to the likes of Stephen Strasburg.  Obviously their stuff is different, but their ability to pitch well at an young age is similar. Blogging for Susie Harvey has made 13 starts this season.  He is 5-0 with a 2.10 ERA.  Think it's a fluke?  Last season, Harvey made 10 starts and posted a 2.73 ERA.  So in 23 starts over two seasons, Harvey is 8-5 with a 2.35 ERA.  There's reason to be excited if you're a Mets fan.
