New York Mets Report:
The New York Mets appear to have a prize in Matt Harvey. However, after reading the Men’s Journal story I had to wonder. He couldn’t have meant what he was quoted as saying, could he?
As far a being a Derek Jeter-wannabe, the context was strictly in the pursuing female sense, and as you know, the Yankee shortstop has a bit of a reputation. But, he is Teflon and nothing sticks to him. Harvey doesn’t have that, yet. He may never have it, but at least he’s proving he has the smarts to enter damage control.
HARVEY: Damage control alert.
Today, Harvey came out with this tweet: “It really sucks how words get used and completely taken out of context.’’
Yes, it does.
I don’t doubt it is an accurate quote, as these style interviews are usually recorded, but in reading the article there was precious little set-up as to the context of the quote. There didn’t appear to be an effort on the writer’s part to create the scene or ask a follow-up for clarification. It came off as a “money quote,’’ so

Mets phenom Matt Harvey is living the dream in his first full season in the majors, starting the All-Star Game in front of the hometown fans and dating a supermodel. So why not shoot for the moon?
Harvey said he wants to have Derek Jeter's life, especially his love life, and have "the best apartment in the city" when he gets "that $200 million contract."...
Matt Harvey recently sat down with David Amsden of Men’s Journal to discuss how amazin’ it is being Matt Harvey.

It really sucks how words get used and completely taken out of context.

Obviously, I am not a Mets fan. I am a Yankees fan. Always have been and always will be; so some might say I am slightly bias on a Yankees-Mets topic. But growing up in New England, I never had a real hatred for the Mets – even when they were winning. So I can confidently say that I am totally objective towards Matt Harvey and the Mets.
Matt Harvey has been one of the most...
David Wright and Matt Harvey weren’t the only Met organization employees to perform in All-Star Games this month. There was also the Major League Baseball Futures Game at Citi Field this past Sunday and the Triple-A All-Star Game held Wednesday night. As well as the Double-A Eastern League’s All-Star Game held back on July 10th.
Before diving into the Futures Game though...
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.
I asked some of our writers what they felt were the Best and Worst moments for the Mets in the first half, and it looks like the consensus for the best was when we swept the Yankees and the Empire State Building was brightly lit up in Blue and Orange.
Best Moment: I’d have to say sweeping the Yankees in four games was pretty special. You hang onto moments like that...

As the Mets get set to open the second half with a home series with the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, the Mets have a lot of work to do if they have any notion of trying to creep back into the wild-card race.
It’s unlikely, though, that the Mets will contend, as they simply don’t have that much talent to work with. That’s not to say that the last two and half months won’t...
Zack Wheeler day was a bust.
The other phenom in the Mets’ rotation didn’t remind anyone of Matt Harvey, but the bullpen bailed him out in a 5-4 win over the Phillies at Citi Field on Saturday.
Wheeler needed one more out to be in line for the win, but couldn’t get it. With a two-run lead, he left with the bases loaded and two out in the fifth, when Terry Collins came out...
Getting hit by a Matt Harvey fastball clocked at 96 mph in the first inning of Tuesday night’s All-Star Game didn’t stop Robinson Cano from traveling home to the Dominican Republic.
“He is in the Dominican and [is] day-to-day,’’ general manager Brian Cashman said of his best player, who left the AL’s 3-0 win with a bruised right quadriceps.
Cashman chatted with Cano...
