PLAYERS: Matt HarveyJohn Buck
TEAMS: New York Mets
When New York Mets young ace Matt Harvey looks in for the signs from catcher John Buck he will see pink. Buck will wear pink reflective stickers on his fingernails Sunday to honor breast cancer survivors on Mother's Day. Catchers often paint their fingernails white to make it easier to decipher the signals they are giving for a particular pitch. Buck prefers the stickers from Game Signs because they have a reflective quality that paint - and correction fluid - lacks. He usually wears white ones, though. Players around the major leagues will be donning all sorts of pink paraphernalia Sunday, including cleats, wrist bands and necklaces. Many players will also use pink bats.

Is Matt Harvey really unstoppable?

Yeah, yeah, yeah; another story about how amazing Matt Harvey is. Harvey is the best pitcher the Mets and their fans have seen on the hill in quite some time and things just keep getting better. The right-hander retired 27 of 28 hitters across nine shutout innings in his last start and looked pretty awesome doing it with a bloody nose. Harvey has not lost a single start this season...

Matt Harvey is the Dark Knight of Gotham

What a beauty of a cover and an instant Mets collectible for all you die-hards out there. Get is signed, get it framed, I know I will.

Does Buck and Plawecki Make d’Arnaud Trade Bait For Power Outfielder?

Ike Davis frustrates me. Unlike Lucas Duda who was drafted much later in the draft, expectations have always been really high for the first-round first baseman and for the most part I’ve wanted more from him than what he’s shown thus far. I gave Davis a pass during last season’s first half, what with the Valley Fever and that whole ankle debacle, but what’s his excuse this...

Mets Waste Another Matt Harvey Start

METS CAN’T AFFORD TO WASTE HARVEY (AP) Terry Collins said the Mets are a different team with Matt Harvey, and that he gives them a presence a chance to win once every five days. That makes it is especially troubling when they waste one of his starts, as they did in Sunday’s 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Harvey, who flirted with perfection in his previous start Tuesday...

The Mets: Elite Baserunners

Last night, the Mets won 3-2 over the Pirates on three runs deserving the “manufactured” classification. Every run required a baserunner to take an extra base. John Buck scored on a sacrifice fly in the third inning after he went first-to-third on a single. Andrew Brown scored from first on a double in the seventh inning, and Marlon Byrd scored the game-winner on a relatively...

3 Up & 3 Down: Mets Served Up Some Bad Home Cooking Edition

Usually, it isn’t until after the All Star break, when we need to combine series to come up with 3 Ups and 3 Downs. This week was an exception with the Mets winning 2 out of 6 games against the Chicago White Sox & the Pittsburgh Pirates. Unless the Met offense wakes up real soon, we’re going to be in for a long season. Sorry to say, a first baseman batting .190 in the middle...

Mets Lose Third Straight In 3-2 Loss To Bucs

PRETTY IN PINK? The Mets were beaten by the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 3-2 this afternoon in front of a nicely packed Mother’s Day crowd at Citi Field. Matt Harvey started and while he pitched good enough to win, he wasn’t at his best and he seemed to rely mostly on a variety of breaking balls and off-speed stuff rather than his usual 95-98 mph fastball. He tossed...

Mets Bullpen Not Getting Any Relief; Frank Francisco Suffers Setback

If you look at the Mets starting pitchers not named Matt Harvey, they have not been able to go deep into games of late.  On Saturday, the Mets bullpen had to pitch four or more innings for the eighth time in their last twelve games which has left the unit tired and limited. They called up funky throwing Greg Burke after sending Jeurys Familia to the DL in an effort to give the bullpen...

Game 37: Pirates 3 Mets 2

Well, that was wild.  There were a lot of ways that the Pirates could've lost this Sunday afternoon game against the Mets. They had a chance to really deliver a knockout punch to Matt Harvey in the second when Clint Barmes lead off the inning with his second homer (his first homer was against Stephen Strasburg, go figure) and then they loaded the bases up with just one out...

Pirates 3, Mets 2

You have to feel good about the Bucs taking winning on a day their spot starter went against an ace on the road, and that’s exactly what happened on Sunday afternoon as they finished off a series victory in New York. Phenom Matt Harvey had a solid afternoon, but was far from dominant. After the Bucs fell behind early, they answered with a home run in the third inning by Clint Barmes...
