Found June 28, 2013 on New York Mets Report:
The New York Mets return home from a 7-4 road trip to face the Washington Nationals in a three-game series, with Matt Harvey going against left-hander Ross Detwiler. The Mets are 5.5 games behind the Nationals in the standings, and four behind in the loss column. Yes, it sounds odd, perhaps premature to think, but a sweep could change the complexion of the NL East standings and maybe the Mets’ season. HARVEY: Animated, as usual. A strong close to the first half could get them inside ten games below .500, which could bring some fun to Citi Field after the All-Star break. Too early to say playing meaningful baseball in September, but better than we thought a month ago. Harvey, at 7-1, is an integral part of what the Mets are trying to do, and from his personal objective, a win tonight could go toward his being named a starter in the July 16 All-Star Game. Harvey leads the NL with 112 strikeouts and MLB with opponent’s batting average (.188) and WHIP (0.88). If not for a lack of run su...

Mets Wasting Matt Harvey

It happens. It just happens with more regularity with the New York Mets. Sometimes it is the offense that let’s Matt Harvey down; other times it is the bullpen. Either way, the Mets are wasting the best thing to happen to them in years. LYON: Part of the carnage. (AP) Last night it was a little bit of both, with the obvious villain the bullpen which gave up five runs in the last...

Mets flamethrower Matt Harvey will start for the National League on July 16 in Queens

Despite fanning 11 and only surrendering one run and three hits over seven innings, Mets flamethrower Matt Harvey received a no-decision in a 6-4 loss to the Washington Nationals on Friday night in New York City. Yanked after 109 pitches with a 4-1 lead, even the 24-year-old Harvey (7-1, 2.05 ERA) couldn’t direct the hapless Mets to a victory. With a 32-44 record and jockeying...

Video of Ian Desmond's go-ahead double

"That might have been our biggest win of the year right there." (Davey Johnson, via Washington Post, 6/29/2013) Nationals 6, Mets 4: We'd like to take a moment to thank the Mets bullpen for not being Matt Harvey. Pigs fly, cats and dogs live in harmony, and the 2013 Washington Nationals come from behind to win. Is THIS the turning point? Befriend Nats...

Mets’ All-Star hopefuls reach final push

With the All Star game a little more than two weeks away, prospective Mets’ all-star hopefuls have two more weeks to showcase their skills for the Mid-Summer Classic, which, as you all should know, is being held at Citi Field. The last time the Mets hosted the All-Star game was back in 1964. Just how cool would it be if—even in this sub-satisfactory season—on July 16, when...

Game Preview: Nationals vs Mets

The Mets, fresh off of a successful road trip, come back home to the Nationals tonight. It feels like, at least recently, that the Mets fall flat in Colorado but Byrd helped reverse that by hitting a go ahead homer late in the game and making a key throw in the next half inning to keep the Mets in the lead. How rude of me. I forgot to wish you a HAPPY HARVEY DAY. Matt will be starting...

Nationals 6, Mets 4

Ian Desmond doubled home the go-ahead run in the ninth inning and the Washington Nationals rallied late after a dominant Matt Harvey departed, overtaking the New York Mets 6-4 Friday night. Harvey struck out 11 and left with a 4-1 lead after seven innings. It was the latest gem for a pitcher who could start the All-Star game on the same Citi Field mound next month. Ryan Zimmerman...
