New York Mets Report:
New York Mets
Can we please have a reality check in the wake of the New York Mets losing Matt Harvey for the remainder of this season and possibly all of 2014?
In some ways the Mets overachieved this year, but not to the point where they should be considered favorites next summer, or the following one, even with Harvey.
HARVEY: Even with him, Mets have issues.
The Mets are a flawed team, and considering they just traded their two of their top three home-run and RBI leaders in Marlon Byrd and John Buck, they are even more scarred.
Without Harvey, and with Jenrry Mejia and Jeremy to have surgery, Dillon Gee, Zack Wheeler and Jon Niese are the only givens in next year’s rotation. And, Niese is coming off a slight rotator cuff tear and Wheeler will have only half a season experience on his resume.
It is imperative the Mets go on with the belief Harvey will be out indefinitely and add one or two starters. Please don’t say Daisuke Matsuzaka is enough, and even in jest, don’t suggest bringing back Johan...

I’m officially in 2014 mode, what about you? Actually, I have been for some time now, but the Matt Harvey news and the purge that followed clinched it for me.

@MattHarvey33 Thanks for all the hope & optimism you've given Mets fans...
Many people took it with a grain of salt when Matt Harvey tweeted the following:
Thank you everyone for the kind words and support. I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for April 1.

The baseball world was shocked to hear of Matt Harvey‘s devastating arm injury Monday. However, if Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is able to live up to his Tuesday pledge, he’ll downright floor the rest of baseball.

Today the Mets placed their ace on the Disabled List today with a tear in his UCL. It is unclear whether or not Harvey will need to have Tommy John Surgery.

Matt Harvey is going to miss a significant amount of time; not much else is known at this time.
What has been well-documented however, is just how much of an impact the Dark Knight of Gotham had on the New York Mets organization and their fans alike.
The mood surrounding this franchise has plunged further and further into disappointment, animosity and frustration ever since Adam...
Maybe Matt Harvey knows something we don't. Word has still not come down on how his partially torn ulnar collateral ligament will be handled, but the ace right-hander for the New York Mets is already seeming pretty confident that he will make a speedy recovery.
Thank you everyone for the kind words and support. I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for...
Yesterday, it was reported Matt Harvey may need Tommy John surgery because of a torn UCL in his right elbow. Some people may say they saw the injury coming and the Mets were crazy to let him throw over 175 innings this season, but the evidence doesn’t really support those ideas. After looking over the […]

Video: What is a ulnar collateral ligament???
The Mets’ miserable season just got a whole lot worse.
New York ace Matt Harvey, who started this year’s All-Star Game as a rookie, has been placed on the disabled list with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow — an injury that often requires Tommy John surgery to repair.

I’m so devastated in a baseball sense by today’s news on Matt Harvey… He was supposed to be the poster boy for the new Mets renaissance… Now I don’t know what to think or how to feel…. That said, there is a game today…

Sometimes, baseball is just cruel. Source: #Mets’ Harvey has partially torn UCL. Will be shut down. Determination on whether he needs Tommy John surgery will be made later. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) August 26, 2013 A couple of years ago, Stephen Strasburg was the best young pitcher we’d seen in a very long time, and […]
Now that we’ve all had 48 hours to consider the big blow of losing our ace Matt Harvey, I can’t help but wonder about some things that were said during the press conference when GM Sandy Alderson, manager Terry Collins, and of course Matt Harvey all delivered the somber news and then fielded questions from the media.
First I want to make clear that this isn’t about playing...
MLB franchises do everything they can to try to protect their top pitching prospects. The Washington Nationals did it with an innings cap on Stephen Strasburg and the New York Mets were planning to do the same with their ace, Matt Harvey. But sometimes it doesn’t work, and players like Harvey suffer a torn ulnar […]
