Updated by HoJo on 4/16 Mets manager Terry Collins said he did not plan to disrupt the throwing schedule for Matt Harvey regardless of postponements in Denver. So Harvey continues to be in line for Friday’s game against the Washington Nationals, who are expected to start Stephen Strasburg in the series opener at Citi Field. Original Post by Ed Leyro on 4/15 Although not nearly as grandiose as this historic matchup, Stephen Strasburg vs. Matt Harvey promises to be Must See TV. Matt Harvey almost made history on Saturday for the Mets, coming within seven outs of pitching the franchise’s second no-hitter.  Although he didn’t keep the Twins hitless, he did keep them behind the Mets all day en route to his third consecutive victory to start the season. Given the weather forecasts for Minneapolis today and Denver during the week, the Mets might have to shuffle their rotation if games get delayed or postponed.  If that happens, Mets fans might be in for a real treat next Friday when their ...

MMO Player Of The Week: Matt Harvey Is “The Real Deal”

MMO Player Of The Week Is anybody else beginning to think we might have something really special in Matt Harvey? I think Dwight Gooden put it best, when he said in a tweet that the hurler’s nickname should be Matt “The Real Deal” Harvey. I think that is an awesome nickname, and I hope it sticks. Gooden wasn’t the only one to praise the big righty recently. Tampa Bay Rays...

Mets ace … Matt Harvey

I was one to caution Met fans not to get too excited about Matt Harvey only because he hasn’t face the rest of the National League east yet. I am still saying please be cautious but, I am going to say this… Matt Harvey reminds me of Tom Seaver and I do not say this lightly. I am a huge Tom Seaver fan from back when Seaver was in his prime. I cried the night he was traded to the...

It’s Time For The Nats To Take The Kiddie Wheels Off Of Stephen Strasburg

On August 21, 2010 the Washington Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg tore his ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his pitching arm and needed Tommy John surgery to repair it. That meant that Strasburg — the only real hope DC sports fans had seen in two decades — was going to miss the 2011 season and possibly more. Strasburg returned in 2012 to have a near Cy Young year and help...

Strasburg has struggled by his standards in his first three starts of the season.  The Nationals right-hander sports a 1-2 record, 2.95 ERA, and 1.20 WHIP.  Strasburg rebounded against the Atlanta Braves in...

Citi Field’s First Event: Stephen Strasburg vs. Matt Harvey

In the winter of 1925, a couple of New York hustlers approached noted Wall Street broker and bookmaker – a legitimate profession back then – Tim Mara, looking for an investor. They had an idea of starting a new team in the fledgling National Football League. When Mara inquired as to the amount of his money they were looking for, the answer was either $500 or $2,500 – accounts...

Mets Brace Themselves For A Rockie Series

Not surprisingly, yesterday’s game at Minnesota was bagged by the weather, which doesn’t figure to be much better in Colorado this week.

What to make of Gattis' hot start with Braves?

The offering was well out of the strike zone, a 96-mph fastball on a 1-1 count from the Nationals' Stephen Strasburg. The right-hander ran it up toward Evan Gattis' shoulders, the kind of pitch that batters can embarrass themselves just trying to catch up to. The Braves rookie rose out of his low crouch and planted his front foot. The 6-foot-4, 240 pounder took a wide cut...
