Matt Harvey: About Last Night (September 20)

If there was a lesson to be learned from Noah Syndergaard’s start on Saturday, it was don’t come into a game against the Yankees and throw nothing but fastballs and expect positive results. It was a lesson that Matt Harvey took to heart because he came into Sunday’s game and threw Jacoby Ellsbury a slider …

MLB Daily Heat Check Monday, September 21

Here you’ll find information regarding the pitchers that light up the radar gun each and every night. I’ve listed for both starters and relievers the top average pitch velocity with a heading for type. It doesn’t equate to quality of an outing or take into consideration the end result of the pitch (sometimes really, really …

Matt Harvey: About Last Night (September 08)

To protect my long term health (fear of carpal tunnel, arthritis, lower back pain, etc.) my agent, doctors, advisors, and I have decided to limit this post to 180 words. Thank you for your understanding. Other than Jayson Werth, Matt Harvey didn’t have too many answers for the Nationals on Tuesday night. He relied primarily …

Bartolo Colon: About Last Night (September 05)

In this episode of revolving door infielder pick ‘em, starting at first for your New York Mets is Eric Campbell. Over the last four games, the team has started Michael Cuddyer, Daniel Murphy, Kelly Johnson, and Campbell. What does Campbell do with his opportunity? He turns a sweet double-play on an Ichiro Suzuki grounder in …

Matt Harvey: About Last Night (September 02)

Can I recycle Sunday’s post about Noah Syndergaard? It felt like the same start except this time the Mets scored enough runs that I didn’t storm around the house like a pouting child, and I saw Ruben Tejada hit an inside-the-park homerun. Tejada was an RBI machine in this game. See? I told you he …

Matt Harvey: About Last Night (August 28)

It’s been a while since we’ve been here. The last time the Mets lost it was a sad drive home from Baltimore, which also happened to be the last time the team scored fewer than five runs. What a great sentence to write. Remember when we were all writing about how the team couldn’t score …

Matt Harvey: About Yesterday Afternoon (August 16)

Sometimes it’s best to just step away and not say anything. This is sound advice. Not all advice is sound. Wrapping dirty socks around your neck to remedy a sore throat is pretty stupid advice, or putting chewing tobacco in your ear for an earache. You can probably think of a few others. Walking away …

Matt Harvey: About Last Night (August 11)

It always seems a little odd to me that a 1-0 game can be frustrating for both the team that wins and the team that loses. Shouldn’t the winners take comfort in the fact that they won a pitchers’ duel? This is just one of those questions, really, since the Mets ended up scoring three …
