Collins Lays Down Law With Harvey

The other day I suggested the Mets’ Matt Harvey “just shut up and pitch.” Evidently, manager Terry Collins has similar thoughts, but was less colorful than me. Anyway, the bottom line is Collins and GM Sandy Alderson want to do the right thing with Harvey and the other starters to protect their arms. Of course, had Alderson developed a definitive plan coming out of spring training...

Memo To Harvey: Shut Up And Pitch

Matt Harvey said he wasn’t making excuses for his performance Saturday as the Mets lost in Los Angeles. But, that’s what it came across at for Princess Matt when he blamed the six-man rotation for his control issues. HARVEY: Acting like he’s still in college. (UNC) “With that much time off in-between starts, throwing once a week, I found a rhythm in the bullpen and then...

Six-Man Rotation: Collins Says Harvey Needs To “Get Over It”

Matt Harvey told reporters that he still doesn’t like pitching on extra rest following the Mets’ 4-3 loss in Los Angeles on Saturday. “With the six-man and then the day off, throwing last Saturday and then pitching this Saturday was tough,” Harvey told reporters after game. “We’re all having to deal with it. It’s not an excuse why things didn’t go well today. I just...

Gut Reaction: Dodgers 4, Mets 3 (7/4/15)

“Saturday. In the park. I think it was the Fourth of July.” That blissful song was in my head as I watched the Mets play at Dodgers Stadium a few hours ago. I wasn’t expecting much. I figured since Matt Harvey and Zach Grienke were pitching it would be a light offensive affair, and for the most part it was. Harvey didn’t give up a tremendous amount of hard hit balls. He did...

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.

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...

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...

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...
