Mets Merized Online:
Bob Raissman of the Daily News ripped into Matt Harvey in his Sunday column and asked him to not to blame the media for any of the blow-back from his rendezvous with the glamorous lifestyle of the rich and famous.
Matt Harvey says he wants to be like Derek Jeter. He’s acting more like Alex Rodriguez , which is the last thing the Mets, desperate for a positive image, need.
Harvey’s nude modeling in ESPN The Magazine, and revealing his wants, needs and personal preferences in a Men’s Journal profile (including his idea of the “model” playboy) bring us back to the best of A-Rod’s self-indulgent, narcissistic moments.
Raissman doesn’t complain about Harvey’s over-exposure in gossip columns, celebrity magazines, and doing nude spreads. But takes issue with Harvey blaming the media for any negative fan reaction and public perception.
This all comes under the categories of superficial and harmless. Still, with Harvey, it’s worth wondering where it’s all going. “Baseball is my job and I love

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...
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...
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...
This afternoon New York Mets ace Matt Harvey, dominated the Philadelphia Phillies once again. Harvey’s final stat line was 7 innings, 3 hits, 0 runs and 10k’s. This was the 4th time this season Harvey has pitched at least 7 innings with 10k’s and no walks.
Rich MacLeod (@RichMacleod) created a fantastic GIF of Harvey that we needed to share. It’s Harvey recording swings and...
HARVEY DAZZLES AGAIN!!!
On the strength of a scintillating performance by ace Matt Harvey backed by three home runs, the Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 5-0 this afternoon at a sun-drenched Citi Field.
Harvey dominated the Phillies all day and held them to just three hits and never letting a batter advance past second base. His fastball hit triple digits on a...
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...
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...
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...
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...

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...
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...
