Found August 29, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Carlos Torres did his best Matt Harvey imitation, carrying a two-hit shutout into the seventh inning for the New York Mets in an 11-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. Daniel Murphy had four hits, Eric Young Jr. got three and Anthony Recker added a two-run homer on his 30th birthday as the Mets busted loose for their most runs since beating Washington 11-0 in the first game of a July 26 doubleheader. Torres (3-2) started in place of Harvey, the All-Star ace diagnosed Monday with a partially torn elbow ligament, and gave the Mets everything they could have hoped for in helping them earn a four-game series split. Three days after making a brief relief appearance, Torres struck out six and walked none in 6 2-3 innings. He yielded four hits and left to a warm ovation from the crowd of 22,008 following Darin Ruf's long sacrifice fly. New York finished 3-6 on a tumultuous homestand that included news of Harvey's injury and a trade that sent veterans Marlon By...

A Get Well Message For Matt Harvey

I’m officially in 2014 mode, what about you? Actually, I have been for some time now, but the Matt Harvey news and the purge that followed clinched it for me. Speaking of Harvey, God bless that poor kid. After the news broke about his torn UCL, my heart went out to him and I tweeted him the following: @MattHarvey33 Thanks for all the hope & optimism you've given Mets fans...

The New York Mets and the legacy of losing

Ok, so the loss of Matt Harvey goes pretty deep.  The last time I had a reaction like that was back on July 30, 2004, when the Mets dealt Scott Kazmir to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for Victor Zambrano and Bartolome Fortunato. I have to say, though, that the team’s reactions and the articles I’ve seen posted here, elsewhere, and in print have all been exceptionally forward...

Mets' Matt Harvey to wait weeks to make surgery decision

When it was initially reported that New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey suffered a partial tear to his ulnar collateral ligament, the expectation was that the youngster would soon be going under the knife. UCL tears often ultimately require Tommy John surgery, a procedure that sidelines pitchers for at least a year. However, Harvey tweeted yesterday that he expected to...

Featured Post: Harvey Was Not The Hero We Deserved, But The One We Needed

Matt Harvey is going to miss a significant amount of time; not much else is known at this time. What has been well-documented however, is just how much of an impact the Dark Knight of Gotham had on the New York Mets organization and their fans alike. The mood surrounding this franchise has plunged further and further into disappointment, animosity and frustration ever since Adam...

Matt Harvey says he'll be ready for Opening Day 2014

Maybe Matt Harvey knows something we don't.  Word has still not come down on how his partially torn ulnar collateral ligament will be handled, but the ace right-hander for the New York Mets is already seeming pretty confident that he will make a speedy recovery. Thank you everyone for the kind words and support. I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for...

Tom Seaver: Young pitchers are being babied

There is a popular theory among those in baseball that limiting innings and having them on strict pitch counts will lessen the chance of injury. Unfortunately, there is no credible research out there to support it. It certainly sounds reasonable, but what sounds and what is are two completely different things. This wasn’t always the case, as the old theory was to let the pitcher...

Harvey to have more tests on his elbow

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is going to have more tests on his ailing elbow but after a few weeks of rest. The teams current plan is for Harvey to rest for three weeks and then go get more tests. Harvey is hoping to avoid surgery and hopes that rest will help him do so. Alderson said that Harvey will still wait a few weeks before deciding whether or not to have Tommy John...

Mets Wrap: Dillon Gee Continues Hot Pitching

The projected leader in victories for the New York Mets was, of course, Matt Harvey, with the second choice Jon Niese. Dillon Gee might have been the third choice at best. After Harvey cooled, Gee has easily been the Mets’ most consistent pitcher as he picked up a team high 10th victory tonight against Washington in a 3-2 win. GEE: Stuffs Nationals. (AP) Gee continued his impressive...

Wright won’t forget Mets’ promise to spend

The news hit David Wright said “like a sledgehammer.” That would be the news regarding Matt Harvey the news that arrived Monday the news that sent a shiver down the spines of everyone who’d begun to invest themselves in what the Mets are and where they’re going. The news that still casts a pall at Citi Field even on a day when they battered the Phillies 11-3 a day when...

Mets 2013 Pitching: On the Boulevard of Broken Arms

Wow. Where to begin, Mets fans. I was perusing ESPN.com on my phone when I saw the headline. To say that this is the worst possible news that could happen to the franchise at this particular point in the season, would not be an overstatement (outside of a real tragedy of some sort). In terms of “normal” course of baseball, the word that Matt Harvey’s season was abruptly ending...

Tom Seaver Partially Correct On Treatment Of Pitchers

Tom Seaver, the best player to ever wear a New York Mets uniform, has forgotten more about pitching than any of us will ever know. So, in explaining Matt Harvey’s injury, I am buying into his argument pitchers of today are babied. Up to a point. SEAVER: Go to the whip on today’s pitchers. We will never again see the likes of pitchers such as Seaver, who 11 times threw over 250...

Big Things Have Small Beginnings

In a post last week, I discussed the incredible turnaround the Mets minor league affiliates have made this season with as many as four of them poised to win their divisions and head into postseason play. Yesterday, we posted about the historic season the Binghamton Mets are having as they set a new franchise record for most wins in a season with their 84th victory. It’s no secret...
