New York Mets Report:
New York Mets
In the back of our collective minds, after winning four straight from the Yankees, who wasn’t surprised to see the Mets get beat up in Miami?
I thought they’d get a better showing from Matt Harvey, but other than that, nothing shocking really. Harvey was off his game, but had a chance to win if not for the bullpen, which reverted to pre-Yankees form. The offense continues to sputter.
DAVIS: Not excited by homer.
Scott Rice was due for a stinker, which makes me wonder why Terry Collins would let him stay in to give up FOUR walks. Once a reliever gives up two walk, plus a hit, it is time to pull the plug. What was Collins waiting for?
Harvey’s no-decisions are starting to pile up which is a two-fold reflection on the bullpen and offense. I realize the Mets’ offense has been sucking wind lately, but friend Michael Baron put it in perspective: In 27 games in May, the Mets scored a mere 88 runs with a .222 batting average and .286 on-base percentage. That was second worse in the majors...

I hardly agree with anything Terry Collins says – except on the rare occasions when he quotes me. While talking to reporters about Matt Harvey, the Mets manager offered up this gem:
“He’s been in every game he’s pitched. If we scored him some runs, he’d be 9-0.”

Juan Pierre was on base four times and scored three runs for the Marlins today.
Not even Matt Harvey Day could stop the Miami Marlins from beating the Mets this afternoon by the score of 11-6 to complete an embarrassing three game sweep of the Amazins.
Looking for his sixth win of the season, Harvey struggled today against the Marlins and allowed four runs – a career high –...
Don’t look now, but Ike Davis is showing signs that he might be coming out of his season-long slump.
“That’s three days in a row that Ike has hit the ball hard,” Keith Hernandez said on Sunday.
Davis collected two hits and three RBIs in yesterday’s loss to the Marlins, including a mammoth 425 foot homer that saw him swing at full extension for the first time in a long...
To say Ike Davis has struggled the first two months of the season is a massive understatement. The nicknames for Ike range from Ike Vegas, to Strike Davis, and even IKKKKKKE Davis. There is even a twitter account named @didikestrikeout that tweets yes every time Ike, you guessed it, strikes out; which has happened 61 times this season. The question of whether or not Ike Davis...
Harvey comes to save the day. Maybe the offense will show up, too! Game time is 1:10 PM.

The best pitcher in the National League so far this year is a second-year starter taking the league by storm. And it’s not the one who was just on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Mets sensation Matt Harvey is commanding all the attention, but it’s Diamondbacks lefty Patrick Corbin who is stealthily putting together a season every bit as good — in fact, better.
Even after one...
Now don't get swept by the Marlins.

I should know better than to put the whammy on my team. But if this team is susceptible to something as harmless as my whammies, then it has bigger problems.
Bigger problems ... as in the guy the Mets acquired for his defense misplaying a fly ball to center field costing Matt Harvey...
NEW YORK (22-32) AT WASHINGTON (28-29)
Jeremy Hefner (1-5, 4.74) vs. Jordan Zimmermann (8-3, 2.37)
The Mets have dropped three straight following their five-game winning streak and are 5-5 in over the last 10 games. They are 10-15 on the road this year. The Mets’ odds are so long now, that they are now among the three biggest longshots in MLB of going to the 2013 World...
