What I love most about Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey is their incredible determination and confidence. Each of them possess a similar swagger and they both exactly know what they want and go after it. They pair that confidence with a professionalism you don’t see very often in players so young. I’m sure you caught the comments Harvey made earlier this week about wanting to win and becoming the ace of the Mets. In similar fashion Wheeler weighed in with this gem on Wednesday:
