Mets’ Six-Man Rotation Proof They Didn’t Get It Right With Harvey Initially

While some are giving the Mets kudos for the inventiveness of going to a six-man rotation, they are doing so to protect Matt Harvey and his surgically-repaired money elbow. More to the point, they are doing it because they didn’t properly calculate a program to monitor his innings in the first pace. The Mets entered the season with a “play it by ear” approach with Harvey, but...

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.
