Sports Illustrated has dubbed Mets Ace Matt Harvey as "The Dark Knight Of Gotham."
Harvey, who was named NL pitcher of the month for April will grace the cover of SI this week.
In case you haven't seen it...
When you’re fading fast and it’s not even June, you celebrate the little things. For the Mets, that would be Matt Harvey on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated.
HARVEY: No jinxes please.
Harvey won his first four starts, but has no-decisions in his last four. He has a Major League-best 1.44 ERA and is scheduled to start Friday in Chicago against the Cubs.
Matt Harvey just cannot be stopped. The Mets rookie improved to 5-0 on the season in New York's 3-2 win over the Cubs on Friday night, giving up just two runs in 7 1/3 and striking out six without a walk. His fastball averaged 96 over the 106 total pitches he threw over the evening, topped out at 99, and he *still* broke 96 in the seventh inning. With Harvey, Shelby Miller, and...
Stephen Strasburg can breathe a little easier now. With a 6-2 victory against the San Diego Padres on Thursday night, Strasburg garnered his second victory of the season, his first since opening day on April 1.
The Washington starter worked eight innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits while striking out four.
This was the first time in Strasburg’s major league career...
In a Friday matinee, the sensational Matt Harvey will take the mound for the Mets against the Cubs in Chicago. Though the Cubs are hardly to be considered a daunting opponent, Harvey’s right-handed, and the Cubs hitters to be worth a damn so far are the left-handed Anthony Rizzo, the left-handed Luis Valbuena, the left-handed Nate Schierholtz, and the left-handed David DeJesus...
Where would this team be without Matt Harvey?
Is it safe to say that as of this moment, the only proven and legit core player under the age of 30 this team has is The Dark Knight of Gotham?
I like Jon Niese a lot, but is he a core player? Or just an number three pitcher who plays the role of an ace on a very bad team?
I quickly threw some numbers into a spreadsheet and I can’t...
Friday #Cubs vs. #Mets: DeJesus 8, Castro 6, Rizzo 3, Soriano 7, Schierholtz 9, Valbuena 5, Castillo, 2, Barney 4, Jackson 1.

Stephen Strasburg hasn't gotten off to the start he'd hoped, though the Washington Nationals haven't exactly been lighting things up for him offensively.
The slumping Nationals will try to provide Strasburg with some rare support Thursday night when he looks to end the longest winless drought of his career against a San Diego Padres team that has been tough to beat at...
Matt Harvey has continued to pitch splendidly for the New York Mets but hasn't earned a victory in nearly a month.
While hoping to get some better run support from his struggling club, Harvey will try to end his winless stretch Friday against the Chicago Cubs, who will seek their fifth victory in six games.
During his breakout campaign, Harvey (4-0, 1.44 ERA) has allowed two...
The Mets stopped the losing yesterday afternoon as they beat the Cardinals by the score of 5-2 and avoided the sweep. This afternoon, the Mets look to repair their season by building off of yesterday’s win. Murphy was a big reason for success yesterday with a 4-4 day at the plate with 2 doubles and going an overall 11 for his last 17 (after going 0-17). In addition to Murphy yesterday...
TweetWhy even bother to recap or preview Met games this year? It pretty much is the same old story day in and day out (except with a slight possibility that the team stays in the game with Matt Harvey on the mound). Instead, we at MetsFanClub.com created a quick and easy template to use that will surely save bloggers countless hours of useless game recapping copy:
Before the first...
When the New York Mets decided to shut down Matt Harvey after only ten starts last season, baseball fans across the borough of Queens must have had that uneasy part of deja vu that nobody likes. Understandably, the Mets brass were hesitant to allow their young right-hander to pitch beyond the 59 plus innings that he had already worked, coupled with the team’s recent inability...
I had an opportunity to join Gary McDonald on his Mets Musings podcast earlier today to talk a bit about the Cubs as we get ready to see Matt Harvey and the Mets this weekend at Wrigley Field.
My part starts at about the 20 minute mark, but before that Gary talks about Ike Davis' struggles and some of the other problems the Mets have been having lately, so maybe the Cubs have...

The Mets’ 5-2 win against the Cardinals on Thursday was only the second time in their past 10 games they topped three runs. But when it’s rained, it’s poured for the Mets...
The Mets have lost seven of their last ten games, including a sweep by the Pirates and a near-sweep by the Cardinals. Luckily for the Mets, they have the Marlins in their division so it will be difficult to drop into last place. I was surprised to read that they've placed foruth in the division for four straight years – it seems like just yesterday they were blowing big leads...
