BEST OF MAXIM
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...
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...
One of my greatest wishes as a relatively young Mets fan is wanting to have seen Tom Seaver pitch.
Sure, I’ve seen the highlight videos and World Series tapes that portrayed his dominance, but it’s still not the same as seeing the best pitcher in Mets’ history actually toe the rubber.
However, albeit still very early, we younger Mets fans are seeing firsthand what it was like...
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...
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...
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.

1:10 PM–Citi Field, New York
The Bucs finish this weekend’s series in New York with another afternoon game on Mother’s Day. Be sure to take the advice of the Bucs’ equipment manager today.
Tony Sanchez was not activated from the taxi squad, so Russell Martin‘s injury apparently isn’t serious (although...
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...
