Found June 26, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
Pitching coach Dan Warthen told Mike Puma of the New York Post that he would adjust the rotation to allow Matt Harvey to start the All Star Game if Bruce Bochy gives him the nod. “That is 20 days away, a lot could change,” Collins said, referring to postponements that could alter the rotation. “But if he gets picked to start the game, I would think we would adjust it.” All-Star rosters are set to be unveiled on July 7, but the All-Star managers typically don’t announce their starting pitchers until the day before the game, says Puma. That would put the Mets in the position of needing advance notice from NL manager Bruce Bochy if Harvey was going to receive the assignment. Bochy has said he’d likely consider starting Harvey because the game is in Queens. Or he could likely start him because he’d give the NL the best chance to win and his stats back that up. In his last start, Harvey limited Philadelphia to two hits and a walk in six scoreless innings to give him an NL-leading 2.04 ER...

Human Comparisons To Matt Harvey Are Getting Hard To Find

It seems like the only one that can slow down Matt Harvey is Mother Nature. Harvey took the mound on Sunday afternoon (6/23), threw six innings, struck out six batters, allowed two hits and one walk. It was a passing Philadelphia monsoon – a game delay of twenty-odd minutes – that kept him from lasting into the eighth inning or beyond. His season is rapidly approaching ...

Harvey’s heat has been unhittable

Matt Harvey‘s 2013 season keeps rolling along and nothing seems to be slowing the New York Mets Ace down.  His numbers are extraordinary as the 24-year-old leads the National League in strikeouts (121), ERA (2.05) and WHIP (0.88). Simply put, as Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote in his column this morning, “Right now, he is the most overpowering starter in the majors...

2013 All Star Game: Give Matt Harvey The Damn Ball

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York wrote what I felt was one of the strongest arguments in making the case for Matt Harvey starting the All Star Game for the National League. He first compares Harvey, who he calls the NL’s Justin Verlander, to last season’s NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey: Through 16 starts, Harvey is 7-1 with a 2.05 ERA, 121 strikeouts, a 0.882 WHIP, 4 homers allowed...

With the movement, Gee gets bumped to Saturday and Zack Wheeler Sunday.The team recently announced the shift on Twitter.

The Matt Harvey Express Rolls Over the Phillies

If the opponents in the National league east have not become impressed with Matt Harvey, the Philadelphia Phillies have. David Wright had a up close and personal view of the Philly hitters as the Mets ace (Yes I said since earlier this season, he is the ace) made believers of the Phillies. Wright knew it was going to be a good day. He saw the surprise on Jimmy Rollins’ face after...

Game Preview: Nationals vs Mets

The Mets, fresh off of a successful road trip, come back home to the Nationals tonight. It feels like, at least recently, that the Mets fall flat in Colorado but Byrd helped reverse that by hitting a go ahead homer late in the game and making a key throw in the next half inning to keep the Mets in the lead. How rude of me. I forgot to wish you a HAPPY HARVEY DAY. Matt will be starting...

Mets Marketing of Wheeler is Irresponsible

The New York Mets have launched a marketing campaign for Zack Wheeler’s home debut his Sunday against the Washington Nationals titled “Wheelz Up”. While the organization has done an effective job in turning Matt Harvey’s home outings into “Harvey Day”, they’re similarly looking to turn the newly debuted pitcher’s starts into something similar. The same pitcher who...

3 Up & 3 Down: Failure In Philly Is Not An Option Edition

The New York Mets won their second consecutive road series against an Eastern Division rival, after rocking the Phillies 8-0 on Sunday. There are so many encouraging things to take away from this series, that we’re going to get right to the 3 & 3. Amazin’ Matt: Ho hum, Matt Harvey pitched the rubber game of the series on Sunday and only went six scoreless innings, before...

Nationals-Mets Preview

The New York Mets will be putting their best on display in Friday night's opener of a three-game home set against the Washington Nationals. Matt Harvey will be on the mound and David Wright will be back in the lineup for New York while the Nationals will hope to continue their winning ways when Ross Detwiler starts against the Mets. The sensational Harvey (7-1, 2.05 ERA) will...

Gary Player to pose for 'Body Issue'?

Golf legend Gary Player, who is 77 years old, reportedly will be posing for a photo for inclusion in ESPN The Magazine's annual "Body Issue."

June 18, 2013 Was A Turning Point For The New York Mets

They say that every great run of success usually had its roots in a turning point. Looking at Mets history you can say we’ve had quite a few turning points – both good and bad. Gil Hodges and Tom Seaver were certainly turning points for the Mets – when they went from lovable losers to a team to be reckoned with and one that shocked the world in 1969. I always felt that the...

Game Chatter: Zack Wheeler vs. Chris Sale (6/25/13)

Wheeler tries to follow up his impressive debut but has a tough matchup with Sale, a first-round pick of the Sox in 2010, the same draft that produced Matt Harvey.  Game time is 8:10 PM.
