Tomorrowland

Tomorrow we’ll start
Matt Harvey
Nothing could be better than Matt Harvey
He’s the one

Just thinkin’ about
Matt Harvey
Clears away the Collin and the feelin’
That we’re done

When were stuck with McHugh
And Super 2 excuses
I imagine an arm
That’s not so useless

Tomorrow we’ll start
Matt Harvey
Hotter than Cholula
Says the gun

Matt Harvey! Matt Harvey!
I love ya, Matt Harvey!
You’re only a day away!

We were squished by the Fish
And Kid Fernandez…
Couldn’t even be cheered
By Keith Hernandez…

Yet tomorrow we’ll start
Matt Harvey
Harvey Day is always marvy
Score a run!

Matt Harvey! Matt Harvey!
I love ya, Matt Harvey!
You’re only a day away!

Matt Harvey! Matt Harvey!
We love ya, Matt Harvey!
Why can’t you
Pitch every day?!

    I just bow to your brilliance…

  • Thank you…and we all bow to Harvey’s.

    Perhaps the guys will all agree to pitch in tomorrow and give Harvey a couple of runs to work with, provided they can crack through that juggernaut Marlins pitching staff, that is. Sigh.

      Maybe Harvey will just have to drive in the runs himself. I wish they would bat him eighth and Davis ninth…that would send a message. Coming off the Subway Series sweep, then getting swept ourselves by a team on pace with the 1962 Mets would be the ultimate embarrassment and I believe would destroy any will this team has left. I was at a Knick game once and a few minutes into it the coach benched all 5 starters…of course we don’t do those things in baseball.

        I remember a week during the Dark Ages when Joe Torre actually benched most of the Mets starters and went with the scrubeenies – the Mike Jorgensens, Alex Trevinos, and the like. And those guys actually went on a little winning streak before crashing back to earth.

    Maybe someone can convince Daddy Warbucks to buy the team!

    Oh, wait – he lost all his money to Madoff, too…

    Hi Greg,

    Just too bad we don’t have a wealthy Daddy Warbucks to come to the rescue as well.

  • Just got home from Fresno where I watched Nieuwenhuis pop a two run homer to give Las Vegas and Zack Wheeler a 2-1 victory over the Fresno Grizzlies. Zack looked good to me (I’m no scout) and threw 93-100 mph depending on the mood of the scoreboard (it also said he threw one 41 and one 57 mph so my trust is thin). 6 innings, 3 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, 6 K’s. He’s now 4-1 with a 3.86 era. And he hit a double off the center field fence! I think it’s time to give him some on the job training, he can’t be worse than the non-Harvey crew.

    Are they bad because they’re so frustrating or are they frustrating because they’re so bad? I say all of the above. You know Harvey will have better days, and someday maybe the Mets will too. What a mortifying buzzkill that series was.

  • […] in the Loriatorium? Taking two of three there with one to go (guess what day it is…Guess What DAY IT IS!) may be a sign that the antiapocalypse is finally upon us, that the Mets aren’t Chad […]
