A Happy Harvey Day…for AJ

On a day where Mets ace Matt Harvey (and far too many Batman puns) seemed poised to take the stage, A.J. Burnett was the main man for the Pirates…again. Burnett now stands alone with the best ERA in all of baseball. He’s still yet to allow more than two runs in a start. Regardless of how high your expectations were, this is an incredible showing. Saturday’s start was some...

Gut Reaction: Pirates 8, Mets 2 (5/23/15)

Matt Harvey didn’t have it today. He allowed seven runs, the most in any game of his career, and the Mets continue their slide due to up and down pitching, bad defense on the left side of the infield, and an offense that now ranks second only to the lowly Phillies for the lowest team OPS in baseball. The Mets have also grounded into the fourth-most double plays this year, partially...

Matt Harvey Not Happy About Six-Man Rotation?

It was tough not to notice the following item about Matt Harvey while reading Adam Rubin’s Morning Briefing today: “Matt Harvey has every reason to be perturbed. He has tossed a career-high-matching 16 straight scoreless innings, yet has no-decisions in each of his past two starts. And now the New York Mets are expected to go to a six-man rotation, which will decrease his opportunities...

Six-Man Rotation Could Be Good For Mets, Pending Harvey’s Approval

The New York Mets are again making noise about going with a six-man rotation when Dillon Gee is activated from the disabled list. Doing so would allow them to not choose between Gee and Noah Syndergaard, Friday’s starter in Pittsburgh. The Mets considered this before Gee was injured, but rejected it, in large part because it would have meant Matt Harvey pitching with more rest...

Mets’ Harvey Gets It

Kudos to Matt Harvey after the Mets’ bullpen kicked away an opportunity for his sixth victory of the season. Just as he did on the mound, he handled the post game like a pro. Harvey failed in his third straight start for his sixth victory, and in his last two games saw the bullpen blow a 1-0 lead late. In those two games Harvey struck out 18 and threw 15 scoreless innings. He deserved...

Mets Can’t Afford To Waste Harvey Starts

After two missed chances, the Mets’ Matt Harvey is going after his sixth victory tonight against St. Louis. With their offense – and some starting pitching – erratic since April 24, the night Jacob deGrom was torched at Yankee Stadium, the Mets can’t afford to waste a Harvey start. HARVEY: Can’t waste his starts. (AP) Harvey has given the Mets a winnable effort in every...

Harvey Cites Extra Rest For Mediocre Performance Against Phillies

It was obvious right from the start of Friday night’s 3-1 loss to  the Phillies, that Mets ace Matt Harvey seemed a little off. Vying for his sixth win of the season, Harvey labored through six innings and was tagged for three runs on six hits and a walk, including a home run by Ryan Howard. For most pitchers a quality start is nothing to complain about, but for a fierce competitor...
