Found September 13, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
One start remains for New York Mets right-hander Matt Harvey after the rookie struck out 10 batters in a 2-0 loss to the Nationals on Wednesday. One more chance for Harvey to prove himself on the mound -- as if that's what the Mets still need him to do. "I don't think there's any more that I need to see," manager Terry Collins said before Wednesday's game. "There's always room for improvement, as we know. You'd really like to see him have great command of his curveball, locate it wherever he wants to. But he has shown us so much on the mental side -- his determination to be great, his approach to being great, his competitiveness. During the game, he competes." The Mets plan to shut down Harvey for the season following next week's start against the Phillies. The rookie has thrown more innings this year than ever before in his professional career. Along the way, Harvey has exceeded every expectation the Mets had for him heading int...

Harvey Solid, But Inept Mets Offense Shut Down by Nats

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The Mets starter was outstanding, the bullpen was strong and the offense didn’t do a thing. The Mets lost their sixth straight game on Wednesday night, dropping the series finale with the Washington Nationals, 2-0, and were swept for the second straight series. They’re now 13 games under .500 for the first time this season and the offense...

Projecting Out 2013-2015 ETA’s For Mets Top Prospects

The Mets And Their Home Field Disadvantage

They are at a season high of 12 games under .500 for the season and in danger of being swept on this homestand if they don’t salvage tonight’s game. Since the All Star Break, the Mets...

New Yorkers beg Keith Hernandez not to shave his mustache (Video)

Retired New York Mets star (and current Mets broadcaster) Keith Hernandez is considering shaving off his trademark mustache, which in 2007 was named the top sports mustache of all-time (by the American Mustache Institute - apparently there is such a thing). The thought of Hernandez shaving his famous mustache has thrown New Yorkers into a tizzy, which is best reflected in a...

Going, Going, Gone: David Wright Edition

It hard to think that after the stunning exit from the 2006 NLCS, the consecutive collapses that followed, the mediocre baseball since, and the gut check that was the departure of Jose Reyes, that things could actually get worse for our beloved Mets.  With the team poised to close out its worst campaign in at least four years, the organization isn’t exactly entering the offseason...

If you haven’t heard, Keith Hernandez, a New York Mets legend-turned respected and admired analyst on team telecasts, recently said he has been considering shaving off his trademark mustache, saying that he just might show up for the final game of the season with what would be a disconcerting absence of the ever-present soup-strainer upon [...]

Mets vs. Brewers Series Preview

Mets fans are just hoping this season ends as soon as possible. It’s been another lost year in New York, but maybe, just maybe, the team will be able to get at least one win in their series against Milwaukee this weekend. New York has lost six in a row, putting their record at a miserable 65-78 for the season. They were just swept consecutively by the Atlanta Braves and Washington...

Harvey Milks 10 Ks

The Mets went into their minor league system and pulled a giant rabbit out of their hat with Matt Harvey.  *terrible Jimmy Stewart impression*  Mr. Potter, I knew a Harvey once.    Back in 1955, see, and Danny Kaye asked me to sneak this guy named Harvey out of his bedroom at 2 AM.  Nice fella, that Harvey.  He told me a story that involved Ethel Merman and ping pong balls...

Historical Epidemic ... Or Is That Epidemically Historical?

I usually miss a night of blogging due to logistics, vacation, beer, things like that. But I'll admit that I didn't blog about Tuesday night's game yesterday because it felt silly to wail about how horrible a baseball team while the country marked the passing of the darkest date in its history, and in New York City's history. Seemed silly. But I've said it before...
