We’ve all heard and read about how much winning means to Matt Harvey. On MMO alone I believe I counted at least two posts entitled “All Matt Harvey Cares About Is Winning.” On MetsBlog you’ll find three times as many such posts. Harvey reminds us all of how much he wants to win every five days. He’s the textbook definition of a fierce competitor. But thanks to Steve Serby of the New York Post, we learn a few things about Harvey that you might not have known about the intense right-hander. :When asked about his growing celebrity, Harvey whisked it aside, but said something very interesting, “I like to have my personal life, but for right now and for the most part, the season’s on my mind, the All-Star game’s on my mind, and winning’s on my mind.” The All Star Game… How cool would it be to see Matt Harvey getting the starting assignment before the throng of fans at Citi Field for the Mid-Summer Classic? Lets hope it happens. I didn’t know that Matt was a bif fan of our crosstown rivals a

Is Matt Harvey really unstoppable?

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 Waste Another Matt Harvey Start

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...

3 Up & 3 Down: Mets Served Up Some Bad Home Cooking Edition

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...

Mets Lose Third Straight In 3-2 Loss To Bucs

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...

Buck wearing pink fingernail stickers

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...

Mets Bullpen Not Getting Any Relief; Frank Francisco Suffers Setback

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...

Game 37: Pirates 3 Mets 2

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...

Pirates 3, Mets 2

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...

Game 38: Brewers 5 Pirates 1

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.
