I guess the Pirates owed the universe one after Jonathan Sanchez beat Kris Medlen and Jeanmar Gomez beat Matt Harvey.
Marco Estrada's biggest problem this year has been giving up home runs. The Pirates didn't hit any tonight.
Gah. The Pirates being unable to beat the Brewers is the most annoying thing in sports.
BEST OF MAXIM
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.
Matt harvey has gone from New York sensation to a National sensation in less than a half season worth of starts.
SI.com’s Tom Verducci, calls Harvey:
“The most fascinating young power arm in baseball.”
“In an era dominated by pitchers, Matt...
Sports Illustrated has dubbed Mets Ace Matt Harvey as "The Dark Knight Of Gotham."
Harvey, who was named NL pitcher of the month for April will grace the cover of SI this week.
In case you haven't seen it...

What this means for the Pirates is that the Dodgers assume a pro-rated portion of the league minimum salary for Sanchez...
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...
When you’re fading fast and it’s not even June, you celebrate the little things. For the Mets, that would be Matt Harvey on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated.
HARVEY: No jinxes please.
Harvey won his first four starts, but has no-decisions in his last four. He has a Major League-best 1.44 ERA and is scheduled to start Friday in Chicago against the Cubs.
Where would this team be without Matt Harvey?
Is it safe to say that as of this moment, the only proven and legit core player under the age of 30 this team has is The Dark Knight of Gotham?
I like Jon Niese a lot, but is he a core player? Or just an number three pitcher who plays the role of an ace on a very bad team?
I quickly threw some numbers into a spreadsheet and I can’t...
When the New York Mets decided to shut down Matt Harvey after only ten starts last season, baseball fans across the borough of Queens must have had that uneasy part of deja vu that nobody likes. Understandably, the Mets brass were hesitant to allow their young right-hander to pitch beyond the 59 plus innings that he had already worked, coupled with the team’s recent inability...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Matt Harvey flip flopper Mike Francesa ripped the Mets today. Lather, rinse, and repeat.

Jeff Karstens threw three innings in Bradenton tonight.
Jeff Karstens made his first rehab start tonight for the Bradenton Marauders, going up against the Clearwater Thrashers. Karstens was scheduled to throw three innings or 50 pitches. He ended up going three innings, allowing one run on four hits, with no walks and four strikeouts. The right-hander needed 42 pitches to get through...
