Found June 18, 2013 on The Daily Stache:
From SB Nation’s “Talking Chop” Blog: “i would say at least the mets have their B lineup out there too but i can never really tell with them” “The Mets don’t have an A lineup” “No Valdespin “ So watch Wood throw a complete game 2 hitter here and then start the debate that we have 7 good starting pitchers to choose from” “The Mets don’t deserve Matt Harvey” “Over/under on Harvey’s K today 15″ “over” “15 sounds about right” “first time through the order might be a little ugly” “Harvey has a serious dip in” “Good lord that man is talented. Wood better be perfect….” “100 on the gun. Jesus” “Did he throw anything besides a fastball?” “Harvey may be talented, but that first inning was more poor hitting than great pitching” “Too bad Ike Davis is in AAA. Wood’s strikeout totals would be bolstered with his presents in the lineup” “Even the Mets can score runs if you walk them” “I really don’t want to acknowledge it, but I do have a mancrush on a Met. Harvey is a bad mofo.” “He’s a stud, no doubt.” “It’s okay. I have one on David Wright.” “same” “Screw him” “WTF, was that a 92 mph slider?” “Has to be wrong” “Chris Johnson is HORRIBLE” “God, you suck so bad CJ.” “holy ******* “FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL JOHNSON FAIL” “Wish we could develop a SP who can throw 98+.” “Oh god. Watching Simmons vs. Harvey. This should be fun!" ****************************************************!?” “Pretty tough to lay down one when Harvey is throwing 100 mph” “Rasmus sucks” “Well Buck” “Fredi is the dumbest manager alive” “Getting 2 runs off Harvey? good luck” “This is sad to watch” “Barves. Here they come.” “Apparently *******!” = “strike” today” “Anyone see that Wheeler was temporarily demoted to AAA for this game?” “and again right after, until his next start. they are really getting nitpickly with his service time.” “The Mets have to be nitpicky about any and all talent they have, unfortunately.” “This is the same as having to face Kimbrel for 8-9 innings” “Murphy, you asshole.” “You have a tough pitcher on the mound and the WORST BULLPEN IN BASEBALL behind him. Why are you making quick outs? Make him work, get him out of the game, and get into their bullpen.” “Haryey has a no hitter going! No hitter in through 5! I hope he can make history!          All jinxes in action*” “Wait, wait. So he has no hits? The hit total is zero? Is that good?” “Wow, 10ks. Thanks Fredi?” “I’m not sure how much better it would be with the A lineup. He’s dealing.” “It’s going to happen” “He’s going to have to throw 125+ pitches to do… Collins is probably freaking out in the dugout having flashbacks of Santana” “I’m starting to think nobody is going to make contact again” “Kerry Wood??” “Just waiting on the app to send me the notification that Harvey is pitching a no hitter through six innings, that’s when it will get broken up.” “At least they’re getting dominated by a good pitcher this time. I have way less patience when it happens against Wade Davis, Dan Haren, Wandy, Gee etc…” “A HIT!!!!” “Thank you” “HAHAHAHAHAHAHA” “What a disappointing ending there” “What the ******* “STFD David” “had Gattis been healthy he would have homered off Harvey and rattled him” “LOLmets” “Lolmets! Take advantage boys!” “ERMAHGERD a chance…” “Dumb by Collins to not make wait for the pinch hitter to be announced” “Mac has joined the ranks of the struggling” “That’s just terrible McCann, LaTroy Hawkins blew right by you” “at least the Mets had to dip into their pen” “let the Struggling Parnell struggle, stop helping him” “Uggla for Zimmerman, straight up” “METS USED PARNELL IN THE EIGTH, NOVEL IDEA EH” “Shut the **** up Chip. Why did anyone give you a job consisting entirely of talking?” “Yasiel Beej up to the plate” ********** “welp” “Lets hope Wheeler isn’t as nasty as Harvey” “Wheeler is nasty” From MLB’s ATL Braves Forum: “The way Harvey is sweating, he will be lucky to make it past the fifth.” “I wish the Braves had a pitcher like Matt Harvey. The guy is awesome- the real deal. He can reach back and throw 100 mph.” “He’ll blow his arm out.” “Harvey is killing us thru 4.” ”As expected, Braves batters continue to swing at the first pitch — even in the 4th inning. As expected, Matt Harvey is mowing the Braves down — he has 7 K’s, 56 pitches and it’s only the 4th inning…..oh — and he’s throwing 95-99 mph FB’s……” “Killing us? I call it mur.der. LOL Can you imagine what’s going to happen tonight with Zack Wheeler on the mound? Another 10+ K night…..” “Matt Harvey isn’t a very good pitcher. He would be awful if we would just work the count against him. There’s no reason why we shouldn’t have five runs on the board right now.” “You’re right. Matt Harvey is not a good pitcher. (rolls eyes)” “Sorry but Matt Harvey has a HOT girlfriend.” “We are unfortunate enough to face the best pitcher in the MLB right who throws over 95. A bad combo for us.” “Its looking like we will have 20+k’s in one day. That must break some kind of record.” “I have Wheeler throwing about 12-15 KO’s against us…..” “LOL…..Rutroh — I just saw Matt Harvey’s girlfriend — AND I GOT LIFT OFF! HOOVER DAM!!!” “Trade everybody and sign Matt Harvey.” “I’m getting tired of seeing Harvey’s goofy face walk off the mound without any worry in the world” “Hope Teheran turns out to be like Harvey.” “How in the world the Braves were favored in this game with Harvey pitching baffles me.” “Well positively speaking, we get two tries at the Mets bullpen” “Parnell throws my favorite pitch of all time … the Knuckle Curve” “Not impressed with David Wright on defense today……”   The post You Mad, Bro? “Harvey the (nearly) Unhittable” Edition appeared first on The Daily Stache.

Matt Harvey: The Mets’ Number One Badass

There’s really no other way to do this justice put to include the entire excerpt untouched, unmarred and unedited. We all know that Matt Harvey has ice water running through his veins. But I bet you didn’t know this: During his rookie season last year, Harvey was tired and decided to take a nap in a side room of the Mets’ clubhouse. One of baseball’s stupid decrees goes...

I Wouldn’t Swap Matt Harvey For Any Other Pitcher On The Planet

Yesterday, I called Matt Harvey one the biggest bad-asses in baseball after reading about this incident that took place last season, when Jon Rauch (good riddance) decided to haze the young rookie. During his rookie season last year, Harvey was tired and decided to take a nap in a side room of the Mets’ clubhouse. One of baseball’s stupid decrees goes something like: Rookies...

Dubbed ‘The Dark Knight of Gotham,’ Matt Harvey gives Mets fans a reason to visit Flushing

Fanning 13 and surrendering three runs over seven innings, New York flamethrower Matt Harvey helped lead the Mets to a 4-3 victory against the Braves on Tuesday in Atlanta. Battling mild tightness in his lower back earlier this month, its evident the 6-foot-4, 210 pound Harvey (6-1, 2.16 ERA) is completely healthy. “It’s one of those days where it was jumping out nice and I was...

Matt Harvey loses no-hitter on infield single

At least the New York Mets never fail to entertain. Mets starter Matt Harvey had a no-hitter going through the 6th, but in the 7th inning with no outs, Harvey needed a bit of help from his teammates, which he didn’t get. After Harvey fielded Jason Heyword’s slow roller, he flicked the ball to… one, as Lucas Duda, who is making his second start of the season at 1B,  failed...

Matt Harvey, Overwhelming

Matt Harvey didn’t throw a no-hitter against the Braves on Tuesday, but he did almost do that, not allowing a hit until the bottom of the seventh. It’s not that Harvey relied entirely on the strikeout — of the batters he faced, 13 didn’t whiff. But then, of the batters he faced, 13 did whiff, and Harvey’s season rate is verging on 30%. Matt Harvey was already good a year...

Mets P Zach Wheeler doused with beer by teammates after sparkling debut (video)

  An unfamiliar feeling of hope for the future resonated all around the New York Mets at Turner Field on Tuesday after two young, hard-throwing arms in the team’s starting rotation came out with brilliant pitching performances in a doubleheader sweep of the Atlanta Braves. First up was Matt Harvey, who had yet another brilliant [...]The post Mets P Zach Wheeler doused with beer...

Braves Have A Slumber Party

After his walk-off home run early Tuesday morning, in a game that was rain delayed until eleven o’clock, Atlanta Braves’ first baseman Freddie Freeman said in his interview that he and several teammates would be spending the night at Turner Field. The slumber party-goers must have watched too many movies and had too much popcorn as the Braves were held hitless for six innings...

Harvey Wheeler Day Doubleheader Game Preview

THE BIG DAY. Today is more than just Harvey day. It is more than Wheeler day. It is more than Wheeler debut day. It is Harvey and Wheeler Day! I would say chances of this happening again are rather slim but the Mets run into bad weather like I miss the subway (ie. a lot). Anyway, last night’s game got delayed until after 10 and the Mets ended up losing the game 2-1 after a 2 run...

Daily Fantasy Baseball Analysis June 19: Harvey-Wheeler Day

Top Prospect d’Arnaud Cleared To Begin Running Program

Anthony DiComo is reporting that Travis d’Arnaud has been cleared to begin a running program, after he saw doctors today. That’s great news, and now you can get your minds running about the possibility of Travis d’Arnaud catching Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler in September. D’arnaud should be heading to Port St. Lucie to get his rehab started. I’m sure all Mets fans are...

Angst: Part One

Certain people on this planet don't deserve Matt Harvey. Terry Collins is shaping up to be one of those people. Harvey was incredible through six innings for the Mets during Game 1 of today's doubleheader against Atlanta. Harvey's first hit was in the seventh when Jason Heyward chopped a ball towards first and Harvey snared it and flipped to first. Problem was that...

Last Night We Saw A Big Chunk Of “The Plan”

Believe it or not, I ended up missing most of the game last night tending to some medical issues. But you have to love the the technology era we live in. Thanks to my phone, those mid-inning video updates from the MLB app, my Twitter app, and of course DVR. It felt like I was there. This morning at 7:05 AM I watched the game in it’s entirety and wow was I impressed. I can’t even...

Wheeler Deals, Mets Sweep Braves In Nightcap, 6-1

On a day billed as Super Tuesday, the Real Deal and the Wheel Deal became running mates that Mets fans hope to support for years to come.  Just hours after Matt Harvey held the Braves hitless into the seventh inning, Zack Wheeler kept Atlanta off the scoreboard through six frames, picking up the victory in his much-anticipated major league debut, as the Mets defeated the Braves...
