Collins Made Right Call To Pull De Grom

It would have been nice to see Jacob deGrom finish today’s start for the Mets, but manager Terry Collins‘ decision to pull him was totally reasonable. At the beginning of the season Collins said deGrom and Matt Harvey would be watched carefully in terms of pitch counts and monitoring, which fell into line his decision to not let him come out for the ninth. DEGROM: Pulled out...

Every season has its critical juncture and for the Mets it is now after Bartolo Colon‘s 41-year-old arm was mauled tonight by major league’s best team in St. Louis. The Mets’ 11-game winning streak and eight-game lead over Washington has faded from euphoria to the cusp of panic after Colon was ripped.

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...

Takeaways From Mets First Walk-off Win

Last night, I thought the Mets were on the verge of snatching another loss from the jaws of victory. For the second straight start we saw Matt Harvey leave the game with a 1-0 lead, only to be rewarded with a no-decision. The only comfort on Monday night was that at least the Mets walked away with a win. Harvey has tossed 15 scoreless innings in his last two starts while striking...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, May 19

Yesterday I recommended Arizona’s Rubby De La Rosa on the road against the Marlins, plus a smattering of batters from the MIL@DET game and a couple Rockies, Wilin Rosario and Nolan Arenado. As lineup lock time approached, I pulled Arenado for Aramis Ramirez, making the switch for two reasons. First, Ramirez was $300 cheaper and I wanted to improve a hidden lineup slot. Second,...

Harvey dominant as ever, but bullpen blows it before 14-inning win

  When Matt Harvey slapped his hand into his glove as he strode off the mound after finishing his eighth scoreless inning, the Mets and Cardinals had barely played for two hours. Six innings later, he was just happy to see John Mayberry Jr. come through in the clutch. Pinch hitting with one out in the bottom of the 14th, Mayberry grounded an RBI infield single, lifting the Mets...

I’ll Have The Pedro

Pedro Martinez knows what Matt Harvey went through tonight. Petey would pitch his butt off in 2005 only to have little run support or … more congruous with the times in 2005 … a bad bullpen rob him of a well deserved victory. Flash forward ten years and you had a 1-0 game going into the ninth with Jeurys Familia on the mound so maybe Harvey could avoid the Pedro and actually...

Mets Game Thread: Harvey Against Cardinals

In his last start, the Mets’ Matt Harvey attacked the free-swingers of the Chicago Cubs and consequently pitched ahead in the count. The Cardinals’ team he faces tonight are more patient, so it will be interesting to see if their plan is to run up his pitch count. Harvey has been strong all season and hasn’t given up more than four earned runs in any start. Harvey (5-1, 2.31...

Santana to Harvey: New York’s Past and Present

From Tom Seaver, to Jerry Koosman, to Dwight Gooden, the New York Mets have had their fair share of talented pitchers. But up until a few years ago, none of them had ever managed to go an entire game without allowing a hit. This came to an end on June 1, 2012, when Johan Santana threw a no-hitter for the Mets against the St. Louis Cardinals. He accomplished something Doc, Kooz...
