New York Mets
As the Mets get set to open the second half with a home series with the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, the Mets have a lot of work to do if they have any notion of trying to creep back into the wild-card race.
It’s unlikely, though, that the Mets will contend, as they simply don’t have that much talent to work with. That’s not to say that the last two and half months won’t be important. Quite the contrary.
The way the Mets finish this season could prove to be a precursor of things to come in the future. The future looks bright. With that said, here are five defining storylines to watch for, as it could indicate the direction the Mets are heading in.
Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler innings limit
What will be Harvey and Wheelers’ innings limit this year?
Well, if Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins are to believed, than the max innings for Harvey will be set at around 210 (40 more than last season), while Wheeler’s is set to be around 185 innings.
Harvey has compiled 130 innings thus far,...

Obviously, he goes out — he’s meeting these girls somewhere — but you never...

Matt Harvey recently sat down with David Amsden of Men’s Journal to discuss how amazin’ it is being Matt Harvey.
When the article leaked Harvey caught some backlash for coming off cocky and a poor role model. Harvey even sent out a disclaimer about being taken out of context.
It really sucks how words get used and completely taken out of context.

The NL Cy Young award, like the AL award, is a two horse race. Kershaw. Harvey. Kershaw. Harvey. It's interesting that the award has come down to these two pitchers, despite neither of them leading the National League in fWAR. But Kershaw leads baseball in ERA, and Harvey is fourth in the majors while leading the National League in strikeout rate, so it at least makes sense that...
Last night was a memorable All-Star Game to say the least. The night began with Matt Harvey, the 24 year old, Connecticut native and NY Mets budding superstar having a scoreless two-inning outing to kick off the game on his home turf. After a couple runs knocked in by the AL, the NL was left without the jumpstart they were in desperate need of, acquiring just 3 hits all night.

After Mike Trout led off the All-Star Game with a double, Matt Harvey hit Robinson Cano in the knee with a pitch.
Cano stayed in the game initially while walking to first but left the game a batter latter.
Harvey would escape the inning without allowing a run and pitch a perfect second inning before departing the game.
Told Cano got hit more in the quadriceps than the knee...
Well the 2013 All-Star Game has come to a close as the American League defeated the National League by the score of 3-0. It was the lowest-scoring All-Star Game since 1990, when the AL earned a 2-0 victory.
I loved the Opening Ceremonies and it was great to see Carlos Beltran and Mariano Rivera get some nice ovations, but not nearly as loud and boisterous as the ovations for the...
