After hearing the worst news that the Mets fan base could hear twice in one month: David Wright and Matt Harvey have possible extended injuries, every Met fan was up in arms about how the future in queens would look next season. After losing five consecutive games, I started to wonder why I even bothered rooting for a franchise that has the initials: My Entire Team Sucks. But last night Jon Niese proved his worth to the Mets and the entire MLB, he tossed a 3-hit shutout against the Phillies.
Considering the current standpoint of the Phillies, they aren’t what they were but nevertheless he completely overpowered them at home. I personally did not watch the game live, but watching the highlight video actually gave me a smile.
Once upon a time Niese was actually a top left-handed pitching prospect who was a big disappointment in his first two seasons. When he was capped with an innings limit in 2010 and was injured in 2011, he showed flashes of brilliance. The Mets front office definit...

Look at all those zeroes… Lefthander Jon Niese went all the way on a three-hit shutout as the Mets beat the Phillies 5-0 tonight at Citi Field.
Niese was absolutely brilliant in what was his best start of the season and limited the Phillies to just four baserunners in the game. It was his second career shutout and he had the Phillies dumbfounded all night long with a great assortment...
Matt Harvey might as well play on Twitter because he’s not going to be pitching for the New York Mets any time soon.
Last night, while his teammates outside of Marlon Byrd and John Buck were taking batting practice, Harvey mustered all his strength to tweet: “Thank you everyone for the kind words and support. I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for April 1.’’...
Matt Harvey's injury would be a terrible blow to the Mets under any circumstances. But contending teams have enough depth to overcome, or at least mitigate, the damage. The Mets will finally be a contender again when an awful day like this one does not have people writing off the next season.In February 2011, Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright was found to need Tommy John surgery...
Unfortunately The Dilson will not be in the lineup for the Mets tonight as they look to even up the series against the Phillies. Game time is 7:10 PM

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey is done for the 2013 season after the team had discovered a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. This was announced today and Tommy John surgery is likely to be performed although other options are still being evaluated.

The poor Mets.
Mets ace and Cy Young candidate Matt Harvey will likely spend the rest of the season on the bench, as he has been diagnosed with a tear of his ulnar collateral ligament (UCL).
The results came via MRI on Monday and he will more than likely be shut down for the rest of the season, and will probably require Tommy John surgery to fix the damage.
At today’s press...
From the day that Sandy Alderson first took the reins as the Mets new general manager during the 2010 offseason, we’ve all been conditioned to believe that 2014, his fourth year on the job, would signal the beginning of something special.
By the end of the 2012 season, Matt Harvey emerged as the poster child for the new and exciting era that lied ahead for the franchise. And why...
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 GM Sandy Alderson appeared as a guest on ESPN Radio with Mike Lupica and said that the injury to Matt Harvey will not change the team’s plans going forward.
“It’s not a dream unrealized,” Alderson said. “It may be a dream deferred.”
His goals remain the same which he says is to “stockpile talent and lower the payroll to reinvest in team and win ballgames.”
Sometimes, baseball is just cruel. Source: #Mets’ Harvey has partially torn UCL. Will be shut down. Determination on whether he needs Tommy John surgery will be made later. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) August 26, 2013 A couple of years ago, Stephen Strasburg was the best young pitcher we’d seen in a very long time, and […]
Are you excited for the final month of baseball, Mets’ fans?
Clearly that’s a rhetorical question.
With the Mets dropping six of their last seven games, the grittiness and fight that this team displayed shortly after the All-Star break, all but seems to have dissipated. The air has been let out of the balloon as far as this season goes.
Obviously, it’s not just the mounting...
A day after major changes for both franchises, the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets completed a trade that alters the remainder of the season for both.
The Mets were told their ace pitcher, Matt Harvey, would miss the remainder of the season due to a UCL tear. Meanwhile, the Pirates fell out of first place when the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Cincinnati Reds in dramatic...
MLB franchises do everything they can to try to protect their top pitching prospects. The Washington Nationals did it with an innings cap on Stephen Strasburg and the New York Mets were planning to do the same with their ace, Matt Harvey. But sometimes it doesn’t work, and players like Harvey suffer a torn ulnar […]
