Matt Harvey Strikes Out 11 In Final Tuneup Before His NLDS Start Against Dodgers

Washington’s Max Scherzer was brilliant on Saturday night in what is being tabbed as one of the greatest pitching performances in the history of the game. Scherzer tossed a no-hitter against the Mets, his second of the season, and struck out a whopping 17 batters in the process. However, lost in the historic night, was […]

Scherzer’s Brilliance Overshadows Syndergaard And Harvey

Outstanding pitching was the story in the Mets’ doubleheader loss Saturday to the Nationals. Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey were brilliant, but paled in comparison to Max Scherzer, who struck out 17 in no-hitting the Mets, 2-0, in the second game. In doing so, he became the fifth pitcher to throw two no-hitters in one season, and first since Nolan Ryan in 1973. SCHERZER: Simply...

This Time, Harvey Plays Hero in Mets Clincher

The Dark Knight rises. Mets pitcher Matt Harvey may have won some of his teammates back after his performance in yesterdays’s clincher against the Cincinnati Reds. The plan all along was to have Harvey pitch just five innings, and then be done, perhaps being shut down for the remainder of the season. Instead, it was […]

Matt Harvey changes pitching plan, wants ball from Mets

    Matt Harvey threw 6.2 innings and 97 pitches on Saturday to give his New York Mets their best chance of clinching the NL East for the first time since 2006, and it’s all part of a new pitching plan brought on by the ace himself. Harvey, apparently feeling badly about the way the entire innings limit controversy unfolded, took it upon himself to tell manager Terry Collins...

Leo Mazzone Calls Harvey Situation Ridiculous

Former Braves pitching coach Leo Mazzone isn’t a fan of the Mets handling of Matt Harvey. Mazzone, who was the Braves pitching coach for 26 years, told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that he never once had to limit a pitcher’s innings like the Mets are doing with Harvey. “I think the thing is totally […]

Matt Harvey and the third time through the order

Dave Cameron offered his take on removing Matt Harvey last night after five scoreless innings. He pointed out that Harvey was getting ready to go through the order for the third time and this year, batters facing Harvey for the third time had a .710 OPS versus the .646 OPS they have facing Hansel Robles. The key is to remember that Harvey probably wouldn’t have lived up to...

Matt Harvey, Hansel Robles, and hindsight

Going into the season, we expected the NL East race to be fairly boring by the end of the year, and as expected, there’s not a lot of drama left about the likely outcome; of course, the fact that it’s the Mets and not the Nationals running away with the race is a pretty big surprise. Led by a quality rotation and a surging second-half offense, the Mets have put themselves in...

Matt Harvey: I will pitch in the playoffs

    Matt Harvey took some time on Sunday to set the record straight regarding his immediate future, and he made his message perfectly clear. “I will pitch in the playoffs.” In a short piece that he wrote for The Players Tribune, Harvey said that he will not let the 180-inning limit that his doctor has strongly recommended stand in the way of the Mets making a run at a...

Matt Harvey says he always considered 180 innings his limit

    A controversy arose on Friday when Scott Boras made a big public stink about the New York Mets’ usage of his client, Matt Harvey. Boras told CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman that doctors advised a 180-inning limit for Harvey this season because he is returning from Tommy John surgery. The Mets said that number was a recommended soft limit and that they planned to manage the pitcher...
