Mets’ Handling Of Harvey’s Starts Leads To Speculation

On one hand, I admire Mets GM Sandy Alderson’s veiled attempt at honesty. He admitted today the decision not to start Matt Harvey over Jacob deGrom for the Mets’ home opener is partially based on ticket sales.

Bartolo Colon gets Mets' Opening Day nod ahead of Harvey, deGrom: Report

The New York Mets have spent most of the offseason hyping up fans with all of their talk about their young pitching. But, despite being blessed with that abundance of young arms, the team’s Opening Day starter will be a man north of age 40.

Reactions To Mets Opening Day and Home Opener

You know what? Most of the drama that seems to constantly surround the Mets is created by the Mets. It’s true whether you choose to believe it or not. I find that more often than not, the Mets are at the root of most of their problems. Whether it’s having fans sign loyalty pledges, or have the players wear those damn t-shirts then confiscate them 48 hours later, and all the...

FAIL" Stumbling, bumbling Mets to have Matt Harvey to pitch in Game 3

Harvey Feels Great After Sluggish Outing

While Matt Harvey looked fantastic during his first start of spring training, his next outing against Miami wasn’t nearly as impressive. Harvey pitched 2.2 innings and allowed two runs, six hits and a walk. However, Harvey has no worries about his progress recovering from Tommy John surgery (Adam Rubin). “Certain weeks you feel a little bit better than others, especially during...

WATCH: Matt Harvey looked fantastic for the Mets on Friday

Matt Harvey got the start for the Mets in their game on Friday against the Tigers, and he looked like the Matt Harvey that took the National League by storm in 2013, striking out three over two perfect innings. 98 on the black?
