Tuesday was Harvey Day, though you could have been excused for identifying it as simply Tuesday. Matt Harvey, as has been the case most of his six starts this season, pitched well enough to not lose had he been facing the 2016-to-date version of himself. Unfortunately, he was up against Matt Wisler, and Wisler’s been […]
Before Saturday’s game, I noticed a new billboard plastered along the avenue of commerce that serves as Citi Field’s outfield fence. It touted EAST COAST POWER & GAS. Clearly it referred to the home team’s starting pitcher.
Good to see the Mets making some very bold statements.
Offspeed blends notwithstanding, we know Matt Harvey can bring the […]
Before the manager had to deliver the news that something “major” had happened to his indispensable player’s hamstring…before a backup catcher presumably said a prayer that nothing be hit to him in his unforeseen debut as a third baseman…before baseballs brushed back batters hither and yon…before replays weren’t reviewed even though it sure as hell […]
I like the part where perhaps the best righty in the league comes back and pitches like he never paused for an elbow operation and subsequent rehabilitation.
Matt Harvey is ComebacKKKKKKKKK Player of the WeeKKKKKKKKK. With nine strikeouts after a twenty-month layoff, can month, year, decade and century be far behind?
“Just one start” is one of […]
I clearly remember Bob Murphy opening the broadcast of September 27, 1998, from Atlanta by expressing his conviction that “there are days in your life…and this is one of them.” Made all the sense in the world to me. Too bad the Mets didn’t receive his message. They went out on that most urgent of […]
I put in a request for a sitdown with the baseball gods prior to the start of Sunday’s 1:10 game versus the Phillies. I had what I believed were a few reasonable requests.
I asked if I could go the game.
The baseball gods said sure.
I asked for really good seats at a decent price.
The baseball gods […]
Tomorrow we’ll start
Nothing could be better than Matt Harvey
He’s the one
Just thinkin’ about
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
Hotter than Cholula
Says the gun
Matt Harvey! Matt Harvey!
I love ya, Matt Harvey!
You’re only a day away!
We were […]
