IP SO ERA WHIP SO/9 IP SO/BB BAA Matt Harvey 108 128 2.07 0.939 10.9 3.37 0.171 Dwight Gooden 111 133 2.84 1.17 10.8 3.17 0.213   Now I realize we are talking about 100 innings, but this kid is the real deal.  His mechanics are flawless, he has a powerful arm, and his attitude and demeanor are that of a ten year veteran.  Mets fans of the early 80’s went crazy for Dwight Gooden, and the same thing is happening nearly thirty years later with Matt Harvey.  The sky is the limit in regards to what he achieves for his career.   If Harvey goes about his business the right way, and the Mets don’t screw him up, he will be in New York for a long time and do a lot of winning in the process.  It’s not exactly time to lift the Commissioner’s Trophy yet in Queens, but as far away as the Mets are from 1986, they’re that much closer to the next one.  The future is bright for the Mets, because there is a new doctor in town: Matt Harvey.
