MLB Daily Heat Check Wednesday, August 12

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 (8/5)

Ugh. This could be a very angry post. Not about Matt Harvey’s (10-7) outing. No. It’s difficult to complain when your guy goes out, pitches seven innings of two-hit ball and strikes out six. Oh, and he didn’t give up a run. After an outing like that, where Harvey didn’t allow a single Marlin to …

Matt Harvey: About Last Night

When Matt Harvey is at his best, nights like Friday night almost look easy. He was lighting it up on the radar gun, retiring the first 16 batters of the night before allowing a Jose Lobaton single in the sixth. Two days after Noah Syndergaard carried a perfect game into the seventh against the Padres, …

Syndergaard Drops Thor’s Hammer on Arizona

I know everyone is quick to anoint Joc Pederson or Kris Bryant the eventual NL Rookie of the Year winner. Pederson has 20 home runs, makes highlight worthy catches, and certainly has Vin Scully’s support. Bryant has been the talk of baseball since the season started, has been worth nearly 3.5 wins (fWAR), and looks …

Score Four and One Home Run Ago: Mets Win!

When I was in high school, I thought my life could only be made complete with an official Dwight Gooden jersey. The jersey had to be the road grays, and of course it had to have that sweet Mets logo on the left sleeve. I won’t bore you with an ode to jerseys, so this …

Steven Matz Best Mets Hitter Ever

It’s easy to fall into the trap of looking at a list of the top prospects such as Keith Law’s (Insider only) on ESPN or Baseball America’s, and see those players as proven commodities. This year it’s been especially easy when you consider that Law’s top four are Kris Bryant, Byron Buxton, Carlos Correa, and …

Rains Aplenty at Citi, Runs Not So Much

As rain fell along the East Coast and postponed most of my “local” games, I didn’t watch a lot of baseball yesterday. Too bad, really. My wife was attending the New Kids on the Block revival tour, aka Mixtape Festival, and with a quick trip to the supermarket for donuts and ice cream (my daughter …

Dillon Gee Had a Bad Time

Since 2010, the Mets starting pitching has been better than you might think for a team that hasn’t finished above .500 once in that time and has a cumulative record of 416-457, including the current season. In terms of fWAR, the Mets rank sixth in the NL since the beginning of 2010 and the team’s …

Mets Win, Murphy Exits Game Early

I have to admit that today was supposed to be a good day. Despite the fact that I’ll be outside all day working on the yard (still better than a day in the office, sitting in an uncomfortable chair while staring at a computer screen) I felt pretty good. I won a bag of Black …
