In the wins are a totally useless statistic file you can add Matt Harvey’s start last night. He pitched a one-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts. Even had a perfect game going until Alex Rios dribbled out an infield single in the 7th. But because the Mets are the Mets, they were unable to score a run until the 10th leaving Mr. Harvey with a no decision for all his efforts. Needless to say it’s an amazing start, perhaps the best of the year this side of Yu Davish. A word needs to be said about the type of season Harvey is having. He has been overpowering the league all year, striking out over 10 a game and giving up only 21 hits in 49 innings. His strand rate is definitely high at 86%, but you’d expect a higher strand rate than normal with such a high strikeout guy. Can you buy low when a guy is doing this good?Craig Kimbrel blown saves are like “good tequila” I’ve heard it exists, but I’ve never seen it. The past two years Kimbrel has been rock solid. But this year he has already allo...

Hey Sports fans. Great night to be a NY sports fan last night. Especially for the 3 of us that remember when the Islanders were good back when VCR’s were in vogue . I mean you had a great Knicks win, Islanders beating the Penguins at home to even the series and the Mutts winning 1-0 couldn’t have been better. Well if Harvey actually got a win that would have been nice. Matt Harvey was pretty
Matt Harvey, who pitches for the Mets, was very dialed in on Tuesday night as his Mets took on the Chicago White Sox. The 24-year-old flamethrower was so dialed in that he didn’t even realize that his nose was bleeding. The bloody nose definitely didn’t bother Harvey as he pitched a perfect first inning and had a strikeout.

Once upon a time, not so long ago, the Mets had a top ten prospect named Zack Wheeler who was deemed the heir apparent to their oft-maligned rotation. It had to be Wheeler, who would assume the role of staff ace. Especially with the controversial trade of surprising knuckleballer, RA Dickey. It seemed unanimous that Wheeler, his high nineties fastball, and array of formidable...
Just to be clear: New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will be at Citi Field on Wednesday night, not Madison Square Garden.
All season, longtime Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz has sent out playful notes on his new Twitter account that are totally untrue. There was one, for example, about the Mets playing a tripleheader after snowouts at Colorado.
His latest message caused more of a commotion...
Matt Harvey was a prospect you heard about from the New York Mets but Zack Wheeler has been the bigger name. Wheeler is still down in the minors and has even been struggling at the beginning of this year. Harvey was called up last year and has never looked back, he continues to get better and could even be an All Star this season. It is his rookie season, his first full year...
Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler headline a handful of budding young pitchers who hope to one day bring the New York Mets organization back to relevance again. Harvey, in his first full season, is doing his best to do just that–as exemplified by his near-perfect, nine shutout frames in Tuesday night’s walk-off victory by the Whitestone kid, Mike Baxter–and Wheeler is knocking...

DAVID WRIGHT, 3B
MMO PLAYER OF THE WEEK
David Wright copped his third MMO Player of the Week honor after what may have been his most productive week of the season.
The feisty third baseman had a few run-ins the umps this past week which is something we don’t see too much of from him, but it’s what a player does in the box score that matters most for this weekly staple at MMO...
Tuesday started with Chris Carlin and Bob Ojeda doing the Mets myriad of pre-game shows (Pre Game Live at 6:30, First Pitch at 6:00, Pre First Pitch at 5:30, Screamin' Ojeda's Cooking Recipes at 5:00, David Wright Finds a Parking Space at 4:30, so on and so forth) live from Citi Field instead of their usual cozy corner of the studio. I'm still not 100% sure...
