Mets won’t handle Matt Harvey like Nats did Strasburg in 2012

With an exciting, young starting rotation bolstered by the return of Matt Harvey and what appears to be a solid lineup, the New York Mets could be a contender next season in the NL East. Naturally, we’re early in the offseason and don’t yet know what moves each team in the NL East can still make. But the Braves look as if they’re renovating, while the Phillies are finally...

Six-Man Rotation Won’t Happen For Mets

With the topic of cutting Matt Harvey’s innings comes the idea of a six-man rotation. One reader threw it out there and my response was it was too bold for the Mets’ thinking. That’s part of it, but there other variables. Baseball doesn’t change easily, and there was a time when the five-man rotation was a novelty. Six? It could happen sometime, but I don’t sense the Mets...

New York Mets getting creative to limit Matt Harvey’s 2015 innings

One of the most controversial decisions in recent memory was the way the Washington Nationals handled the workload for their star pitcher Stephen Strasburg in 2012.  Specifically, setting a hard innings cap to mitigate potential fatigue damage from Tommy John surgery the previous year.  This limit had him shelved by early September and unavailable for the postseason.  A postseason...

Harvey Will Give Mets The Best 1-2-3 Punch In Baseball

Timing is everything.  Matt Harvey is returning to lead the New York Mets rotation, now bolstered with a matured Zack Wheeler and 2014 NL ROY winner Jacob deGrom.  All three have experienced their own setbacks this year, but their talent is in another stratosphere and they’ve each grown from their own experiences.  There may be a lot of question marks still surrounding the...

New York Mets: offseason Matt Harvey update

MMO Flashback: Matt Harvey Was Not The Hero We Deserved, But The One We Needed

It feels like an eternity since we last saw Matt Harvey standing on a mound and menacing opposing batters with his array of lethal offerings. Every five days when our young ace took his turn in the rotation, it was treated as an event that couldn’t be missed and aptly called “Harvey Day.” As we get ever so closer to his eventual return next Spring and as our exuberance rises...
