New York Mets
The headlines were basically the same no matter where you look: Today Is Matt Harvey Day.
Harvey, undeniably the most exciting thing to happen to the Mets this season, starts Wednesday against Cincinnati. In games following his start, the Mets are 0-9.
HARVEY: Goes against Reds.
Harvey has started nine games and won five with four no-decisions. Even in those games he was brilliant. Yes, when Harvey starts the Mets have a very good chance of winning. On those days, the Mets are major league quality.
That’s a good thing, but it comes with a flip side, and that’s outside of him, David Wright, Daniel Murphy and Bobby Parnell, there’s little substance on this team. Harvey’s success merely illustrates how little the Mets have on the major league level, and their refusal to demote Ike Davis shows how little faith they have in their minor league players.
Harvey is a major leaguer both in talent and demeanor, surrounded by players who mostly are not.
John Buck has his moments, as does Marlon...
BEST OF MAXIM
Update By Clayton Collier on 5/22 at 12:20PM:
Major League Baseball has declined the Mets appeal to change a run charged to phenom Matt Harvey on Friday at Wrigley field to an error say Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com. The move would have lowered the 24-year old ace’s ERA from 1.55 to 1.41, however it will remain the former as he takes the hill against the Reds for the series finale...
Matt Harvey is still undefeated ... in two sports.
Harvey, as you know ... and partially thanks to Rick Ankiel's triple on Wednesday, is 5-0 in 2013. Also, he's 7-0 in the stands as a fan of the New York Rangers, with no game being more important than the one the Rangers played on Thursday, a 4-3 overtime victory which saved their season for at least two more days.
Matt Harvey has it. So does David Wright. Ike Davis tried to show it Wednesday, but only had warning track power.
It is accountability, which is the backbone to admit screwing up.
We certainly didn’t see any the past few days from the Knicks, so let’s turn to the Mets. After losing Thursday to the Reds, Harvey was front-and-center about his performance and threw high-heat at...
Mike Francesa lied to David Cone's face this week at the Yankees Pinstripe Bowl golf outing: "I said Harvey reminded me of Seaver last year." Phil Mushnick wants some of that action, pal:

In the realm of broadcasting graphic fails, this one comes out on top.
This graphic was shown during the middle of the Kansas City Royals telecast on Thursday, and it is full of an absurd amount of errors.
The question: “Which young player would you like to start a franchise with?” is posed to viewers. Putting aside that they end their question with a preposition, it’s embarrassing...
The crew covering the Kansas City Royals on Fox Sports Kansas City created one of the worst on-screen graphics ever on Thursday night during the Royals-Angels game. It was supposed to be a simple poll on which young baseball star you wanted on your team, and they just completely botched it.
Here’s a brief list of what is wrong with it:
There is no such major league player as...

Rick Ankiel – CF

Now we completely expect the hapless Kansas City Royals to make blunders on the field, but we expect a little bit of professionalism during their broadcast. Fox Sports Kansas City made one of the most egregious and blatant errors of sports graphics of all-time on Thursday night. During the Royals and Los Angeles Angels game the broadcast team asked the question; “Which Young Player...
With 2013 being touted as a rebuilding year for the Mets, most fans are excited to see the debut of prospects like Travis d’Arnuad and Zack Wheeler.
It is now May and the talk of these prospects is heating up. d’Arnuad is out with a broken foot and is due back soon while Wheeler just missed a start due to soreness in his neck. The team decided to play it safe with their top...
Hats off to the Fox Sports Kansas City crew. They may have pulled off the worst broadcast graphic of all-time during Thursday's Royals-Angels game.There are a couple of screwups with the screenshot seen above. First, the crew somehow manages to produce wrong last names for the likes of Bryce HARPER and Matt HARVEY, arguably two of the sport's biggest young stars.Second, the...
After winning their first home series vs. the Rockies, the Cubs weren’t able to do the same against the visiting Mets. Here is the recap of the Mets series.
5/17 vs. Mets: L 2-3
5/18 vs. Mets: W 8-2
5/19 vs. Mets: L 3-4
5/17- Right out of the gate, it seemed as though the Cubs were going to win the game and beat Matt Harvey, the young Mets’ pitcher, but Harvey was able...
Ike Davis’ troubles at the plate and in the field continued as he botched two plays at first, one in which opened the door to the Reds’ three-run ninth inning in Wednesday’s 7-4 loss. With the Mets being swept, they fell to a season-high ten games below .500. Matt Harvey did not have a great start, but came away with another no-decision.
ON THE MOUND: Harvey gave up four...
