The Mets Should Consider Trading Matt Harvey

The Mets should consider trading Matt Harvey. Why on earth would the Mets trade a 26-year-old ace who is entering his prime and is not a free agent until after the 2018 season? For that exact reason. The value that Harvey could bring back in a trade could be a king’s ransom. If Sandy Alderson called up a team and said we are willing to give you three full years of Matt Harvey’s...

Ex-player Bobby Bonilla gets $1.2M annual payday from Mets

  America will do plenty of celebrating on Fourth of July weekend. For Bobby Bonilla, though, the party already has started.   July 1 marks a special day for the former MLB slugger, as it’s the day he receives his annual $1.2 million check from the New York Mets. Yes, you read that right. Bonilla retired in 2001, but he still earns more than $1 million per year...

Mets' Matt Harvey admits post-surgery phase has been harder than he expected

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey has hit some rough patches this season as he returns from Tommy John surgery, and while he didn't expect his recovery to be without a hitch, he didn't quite expect it to be this difficult, either. "I'm finding that it's a lot [tougher] than I anticipated, and it was earlier in the season," Harvey said, per the New York Post. "Just the feel, going through...

A First Look at Steven Matz

The Mets have an embarrassment of riches in their starting rotation. Jacob deGrom has seemingly become one of the best pitchers in baseball, and Matt Harvey has pitched very well in his first half-season since returning from injury. Behind them, Noah Syndergaard has shown flashes of dominance over his first eight starts in the majors, […]

Can Matt Harvey be a stopper for the slumping Mets?

It used to be a common baseball term to refer to a team’s ace as a stopper. As in, the guy on the mound who ends long losing streaks. Now, it’s just as likely to refer to a team’s main bullpen guy. Or, even worse, as a team logo wine cork. But today, let’s go back to the original meaning. The Mets, losers of four straight, need Matt Harvey to be their stopper. Last...

New York Mets: Matt Harvey bounces back

Breaking Down Matt Harvey vs Toronto Blue Jays

“F–k Yeah, Let’s Go!” Stat Line:  7 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 6 K, 0 BB After giving up eight homeruns in his last four outings, Matt Harvey got back on track against the hot hitting Blue Jays lineup.  Harvey’s displayed good command in his four pitch repertoire and nice two-seam movement on his fastball as the game progressed but much of his success can be attributed to his game...

MMO Morning Grind: Finally, A Happy Harvey Day

Matt Harvey pitched last night, and the Mets won. Don’t take it for granted. After winning their ace’s first five starts, the Mets had lost five of the last seven games in which Harvey took the mound, going into last night’s game. Of course, that’s not all Harvey’s fault— on May 18th, his season ERA stood at 1.98 despite the team having dropped two of his last three...

What in the world is wrong with New York Mets ace Matt Harvey?

Okay, athletes are human too. No pitcher is going to have a perfect season, and even the best are going to get nicked up every once in a while. However, the New York Mets and their fans have to be getting worried about ace Matt Harvey’s recent streak of poor outings, especially considering the Dark Knight, as he is affectionally called, is coming off missing all of 2014 due to...

Watch: Matt Harvey discusses Jacob deGrom’s hair on ‘The Daily Show’

Jon Stewart is a big New York Mets fan. So it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that he’d want the ace of his favorite baseball team on The Daily Show, especially when the host has about 10 weeks before he gives up the anchor chair on Aug. 6. Matt Harvey was Stewart’s guest Thursday night, and the Mets diehard immediately took steps to protect the pitcher’s prized right arm...
