Matt Harvey has repeatedly said that he would like to pitch in the majors this season. It’s an understandable sentiment from a competitive athlete, even one less than one year removed from Tommy John surgery, but Mets manager Terry Collins told Harvey via phone today to tap the breaks.

Matt Harvey has insisted all along that he planned to pitch this season, but now that his recovery process from Tommy John elbow surgery has been slowed down a bit by the Mets he’s come around to the idea that it might be 2015 before he sees games action in the majors again.

Matt Harvey is, generally speaking, not allowed to have a life. So it should be fun if/when he goes to a Stanley Cup Final game on the same day he throws from a mound for the first time.

The columnist’s name is Anthony Rieber. And he apparently doesn’t get out much.

Last month Matt Harvey talked the Mets into letting him do his Tommy John elbow surgery rehab in New York rather than at their complex in Florida, so naturally he’s been taking in the local scenery.

I haven’t been following the Mets’ roster moves too terribly closely this spring so maybe this isn’t news to hardcore Mets fans, but Jon Heyman says that he believes both Jose Valverde and Daisuke Matsuzaka are expected to make the Mets’ 25-man roster. Matsuzaka should make the rotation. The two veterans have some things in…

It’s impossible to summarize all the elements of this story from Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, so you might as well just go read it. The gist is that Matt Harvey wants to do his year-long rehab from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery at home in Manhattan and the Mets would rather…

Matt Harvey‘s starts quickly became an event with Mets fans, so much so that the day that he would start began to be called “Harvey Day.” There’s a very good chance that there won’t be another “Harvey Day” until 2015 after his Tommy John surgery, but the ace right-hander indicated on his Twitter account this…
