Found July 02, 2013 on New York Mets Report:
No, Matt Harvey doesn’t get a partial credit for a win last night, but even so it was fun to watch the New York Mets turn aggravation to something to shout about. They left 20 runners on base for the second time this season, but nonetheless came from behind twice to beat Arizona, 5-4 in 13 innings, before another sparse crowd at Citi Field. BROWN: Coming through. (AP) `If you’re going to be out there that long you might as well win the game,’’ manager Terry Collins told reporters. “We were out of pitching, I can tell you that.’’ Actually, the Mets were out of everything, even using Anthony Recker as a pinch-hitter. The Mets won largely from the contributions of three players – Josh Satin, Andrew Brown and Omar Quintanilla – and reliever David Aardsma, who weren’t on the Opening Day roster. Factoring prominently was Satin, whom the Mets had to place on their 40-man roster to promote him when Ike Davis was finally sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas. Satin has been on a tear, batting .444...

D-backs look to snap skid against Harvey, Mets

The Mets hope Tuesday marked a new era at Citi Field. They'll look to translate the momentum gained from a seven-run seventh inning into a third win in three nights over the slumping Diamondbacks on Wednesday night. The Mets (35-45) had been held to five runs or fewer in 30 straight home games when they came up to bat following the seventh-inning stretch Tuesday. During that...

The X Files: Harvey Is Otherworldly

Matt Harvey has the lowest ERA (2.25) among pitchers since 1921, whose first 27 major league appearances were all starts. Mike Mussina is second on that list (2.56 ERA). Harvey also has the best WHIP (0.95) of any pitcher since 1921 through his first 27 career starts. Only four other pitchers had a WHIP under 1.00 in their first 27 starts: Dick Hughes (0.96), Vida Blue (0.97...

Mets Would Be Foolish To Deal Jeremy Hefner

Matt Harvey isn’t the only New York Mets pitcher not receiving any support from his hitters. The true measure of how well Jeremy Hefner has pitched this year isn’t found in his 2-6 record, but 3.72 ERA. Hefner has arguably been the Mets’ second most effective starter behind Harvey, which should mute any trade discussions. HEFNER: Having understated season. (AP) Hefner, tonight’s...

Mets planning to shut Harvey down?

The Mets are reportedly planning to shut down ace Matt Harvey because of a Stephen Strasburg-style innings cap. He has been their best pitcher this season.

Diamondbacks 5, Mets 3

Randall Delgado outpitched Matt Harvey for his first major league win in more than a year, and the Arizona Diamondbacks snapped a five-game skid with a 5-3 victory over the New York Mets after a long rain delay Wednesday night. Cody Ross hit a three-run homer off Harvey to put Arizona ahead, and Delgado struck out a career-high nine in seven innings to give the NL West leaders their...

A Long Day, But Long Overdue

Many times, reality doesn't reach the hype. We've been spoiled by Matt Harvey, who seems to reach the hype every time, and has done so in a relatively short period of time. Zack Wheeler hasn't even reached Harvey's amount of service time, so to think that Wheeler was going to break through and be dominant and reach his hype after three starts is quite ridiculous....

Jeremy Hefner Among Group Of Mets Making 2014 Noises

The New York Mets had high expectations for Matt Harvey for this year. Jeremy Hefner was to fill out the rotation in Las Vegas, and be called up if something went wrong, like we knew it would, in Flushing. Hefner’s break came with the expected breakdown of Johan Santana. He made the Opening Day roster, was hammered early, but eventually has become one of the Mets’ most effective...

Davey Johnson On Zack Wheeler

Barbara Barker of Newsday caught up with Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson who had some nice things to say about Zack Wheeler, but also pointed out what the young right-hander’s main problem is. “You’ve got to like his arm,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “He has a good fastball and breaking stuff. But it’s command. It’s always going to be command up...
