Found July 15, 2013 on The Outside Corner:
Matt Harvey is starting the All-Star Game on Tuesday night for the National League. That's awesome. But at the same time, that doesn't mean he's a familiar face in New York City. On Monday night's episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Harvey hit the streets of New York, and asked Mets fans what they thought about Matt Harvey. Most of them didn't recognize their star pitcher, including a fan wearing Harvey's jersey and a fan who talked about seeing him naked in ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue. Oh, the joys of being a young superstar in the Big Apple... [follow]

All Star Game Preview

Hometown pitcher Matt Harvey (7-2, 2.35 ERA) of the Mets gets the ball for the National League and will be going up against Max Schrezer (13-1, 3.19 ERA) of the Tigers for the 2013 All Star Game.

TOC midseason awards: NL Cy Young

The NL Cy Young award, like the AL award, is a two horse race. Kershaw. Harvey. Kershaw. Harvey. It's interesting that the award has come down to these two pitchers, despite neither of them leading the National League in fWAR. But Kershaw leads baseball in ERA, and Harvey is fourth in the majors while leading the National League in strikeout rate, so it at least makes sense that...

Insiders Look At The 2013 MLB Home Run Derby and All-Star Game

Last night was a memorable All-Star Game to say the least. The night began with Matt Harvey, the 24 year old, Connecticut native and NY Mets budding superstar having a scoreless two-inning outing to kick off the game on his home turf. After a couple runs knocked in by the AL, the NL was left without the jumpstart they were in desperate need of, acquiring just 3 hits all night. The...

Cano stayed in the game initially while walking to first but left the game a batter latter.

AL Defeats NL 3-0 In Mid-Summer Classic Amid Some Memorable Moments

Well the 2013 All-Star Game has come to a close as the American League defeated the National League by the score of 3-0. It was the lowest-scoring All-Star Game since 1990, when the AL earned a 2-0 victory. I loved the Opening Ceremonies and it was great to see Carlos Beltran and Mariano Rivera get some nice ovations, but not nearly as loud and boisterous as the ovations for the...
