Video: Matt Harvey Dominates Domonic Brown

Matt Harvey vs. Domonic Brown is a battle that we could see for the next 10 years as they are the future stars of their respective teams. Of course if the early results are any indication of what is to come, Phillies fans wont be happy with what they see. Brown on Sunday faced Harvey three times and each time was a victim of a strikeout. Overall in his career he is 0-10 with 7 K’s...

Video Of The Week: Matt Harvey On Jimmy Fallon

Click here to view the video on YouTube. For this week I have chosen to take the video of the week in a bit of a different direction.  Recently a fellow writer on Taking Bad Schotz, Seth Goldberg, told me about a video of Matt Harvey on Jimmy Fallon. It did not disappoint and it’s easily one of my favorite segments on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon that I have ever seen. The reaction...

Contrasting Zack Wheeler And Matt Harvey

The New York Mets won the games pitched by Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey over the weekend, but their performances illustrated the gap between the two, and still the need for improvement of each. Let’s look first at Wheeler, who is here to stay. He’s taken his lumps and will take some more. Wheeler’s problem remains command of all his pitches, beginning with the fastball that...

Harvey, Mets overpower Phillies

Matt Harvey struck out 10 in seven overpowering innings, and David Wright and Juan Lagares each hit a home run upheld by video review to lead the New York Mets to a 5-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. Marlon Byrd followed Wright's first-inning homer off the dark metal railing atop the new left-field wall with a no-doubter into the second deck against Cliff...

Matt Harvey: The Perfect Met

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...

Bad Weekend Series Leaves Phillies in Limbo

Remember back on Friday night when the Phillies pounded the Mets to the tune of 13 runs? Remember all those hits and homers? Ah, memories… Now back to reality…and reality has hit the Phillies hard this weekend as they dropped 2 games out of 3 to the Mets. Saturday’s game was winnable, but Cole Hamels floundered again and the offense blew many opportunities. Sunday’s game...

Mets Troll Yankees On Twitter, Hilarity Ensues

The New York Mets are playing some pretty good baseball of late. Matt Harvey is the best thing since sliced bread, Juan Lagares was just named NL Player of the Week, and they are now within 10 games of the division leading Atlanta Braves. So the Mets are feeling pretty good about themselves. Good enough to poke fun at their crosstown rivals with a subtle poke at the injury-riddled...

15 Hits, 13 Runs Propel Phillies into Second Place

Picture by Andrew Gillen Baseball. Is. Back. After an All-Star Break that seemed to last a month and a half, the Phillies and the rest of Major League Baseball returned to regular season action. It was a disappointing showing for Cliff Lee and Domonc Brown on Tuesday night, but it...

Mets hang on late to beat the Phillies, 5-4

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...
